PURPOSE OF THE COLLEGE 

Mary Washington College is a state-aided liberal arts college 
for women and a part of the University of Virginia. As such, it 
has an obligation to the people of the Commonwealth of Vir- 
ginia to provide, without regard to race, creed or national origins, 
the best education for those students who give promise of suc- 
ceeding in college. 

As a liberal arts college, Mary Washington stands firmly in 
the tradition that a broad education in the arts, the sciences, 
and the humanities, complemented by intensive study in a par- 
ticular field of interest, is a most appropriate preparation for life 
and citizenship. 

As a college for women, Mary Washington endeavors to pro- 
vide the best intellectual background possible for the woman of 
today. It recognizes the importance of the inquiring mind, the 
significance of aesthetic sensitivity and the necessity of individual 
and corporate responsibility. 

Finally, as a part of the University of Virginia, Mary Wash- 
ington College has a unique role to fill in Virginia education, 
and is pledged to the selection of a qualified student body, to the 
maintenance of a competent faculty and staff, and to the devel- 
opment of the academic and social environment necessary to 
achieve its goals.

General Information 

Introduction 

History of the College 

Mary Washington is the Woman's College of the University of 
Virginia and is an integral part of the University System. The 
coordination of Mary Washington College with the University 
of Virginia was the culmination of efforts by the women of Vir- 
ginia to gain educational opportunities comparable to those pro- 
vided by the State for men at the University at Charlottesville. 

The movement to attain co-education at the University or to 
have a coordinate college for women began with a recommenda- 
tion by the Reverend A. D. Mayo in 1891. In 1894 four hundred 
women petitioned the University for admission. In that same 
year women were admitted to courses though not to classes, but 
few women took advantage of this privilege. The subsequent 
campaign passed through at least three separate phases: first, to 
introduce co-education at the University; second, to establish 
a co-ordinate college for women at the University; third, to 
establish a co-ordinate college for women away from the Univer- 
sity. 

Over a period of fifty-three years, thirty-five bills on the sub- 
ject were introduced in the General Assembly of Virginia. Upon 
the recommendation of a Commission appointed by the General 
Assembly in 1928, the Legislature in 1932 passed a bill making 
this institution the woman's college of the University. This bill 
was vetoed by the Governor because of the great depression at 
that time, and it was not until twelve years later that the coordi- 
nation was actually carried out. 

It is obvious, therefore, that the history of the college is inter- 
woven, and to a large extent contemporaneous, with the efforts 
of the women of the state to have enacted legislation giving the 
young women of Virginia the opportunity to share in the privi- 
leges enjoyed by Virginia's young men since the University was 
established by Thomas Jefferson in 1819. 



General Information 35 

The name— Mary Washington College of the University of 
Virginia— combines historic significance and background with 
local associations. Within sight of the hill on which the College 
is located are the home and tomb of Mary Washington, and 
Kenmore, the home of her daughter, Betty Washington Lewis. 
The college grounds were at one time a part of the Lewis estate. 

One of the few state-aided liberal arts colleges for women in 
America, it draws its students from almost every state in the 
union, the territories, and some foreign countries. 

Location and Environment 

Mary Washington College is situated halfway between Wash- 
ington and Richmond. The grounds, including the main campus 
and historic Brompton estate, comprise 381 acres situated on 
Marye Heights, overlooking the City of Fredericksburg and the 
Rappahannock Valley; they are adjacent to the Fredericksburg 
and Spotsylvania Military Park. The College is noted for the 
natural beauty of its grounds and its neo-classical architecture. 

Fredericksburg and its vicinity have played an important role 
in American history from the time Captain John Smith and his 
followers sailed up the Rappahannock River in 1608 until the 
present. It is sometimes called "America's Most Historic City." 

Fredericksburg furnished both the Commander-in-Chief of the 
Army and the Admiral and Founder of the American Navy dur- 
ing the Revolutionary War— George Washington and John Paul 
Jones. In addition to the Commanders, it furnished six other 
Generals: Hugh Mercer, Thomas Posey, George Rogers Clark, 
William Woodford, George Weedon, and Gustavus W. Wallace. 

This section of Virginia supplied the presidents of the United 
States for thirty-two years during the most trying and difficult 
period of the history of the Republic. James Madison, President 
of the United States and Father of the Constitution, was born 
within twenty miles of the city. Thomas Jefferson, the author of 
the Declaration of Independence, in 1775 wrote in Fredericks- 
burg the "Act Establishing Religious Liberty in Virginia." Fred- 
ericksburg for a time was the home of James Monroe, President 
of the United States and author of the Monroe Doctrine. From 



36 Mary Washington College 

an adjoining county came also George Mason, who wrote the 
Virginia Bill of Rights and the Constitution of Virginia. 

Not far from the College are places visited every year by thou- 
sands of people from all over America and from foreign coun- 
tries: the boyhood home of George Washington, where he is said 
to have cut down the cherry tree; the home and the burial place 
of his mother; Kenmore, the home of his sister, Betty Washington 
Lewis; and Chatham, a favorite visiting place of George Wash- 
ington and later headquarters of the Commander of the Army 
of the Potomac. In Fredericksburg are the first apothecary shop 
in America; the home of Matthew Fontaine Maury; the law 
office of James Monroe; the Rising Sun Tavern, built by Charles, 
the brother of George Washington; the National Cemetery, where 
lie some 15,000 Northern soldiers of the Civil War who lost their 
lives on adjacent battlefields; the Confederate Cemetery, con- 
taining the graves of 5,000 soldiers; and Brompton, now a part 
of the college grounds and the residence of its Chancellor, which 
was once headquarters for the Confederates and center of the 
Federal attack in both the first and second battles of Fredericks- 
burg. 

Richard Kirkland Memorial 

Through the efforts of the late Dr. Richard N. Lanier, of 
Fredericksburg, a memorial to Confederate Sergeant Richard 
Kirkland, of South Carolina, a hero of the Battle of Fredericks- 
burg, was dedicated in the fall of 1965 at the College-owned 
battle site on Sunken Road just in front of Brompton, the resi- 
dence of the Chancellor of the College. In ceremonies attended 
by the Governor of Virginia, the Irish Ambassador, and other 
prominent officials, as well as by the sculptor, Felix deWeldon, 
the memorial was presented to the College by the Mayor of 
Fredericksburg.

cator, social reformer, and advocate of the independence of 
women. 

Jefferson Hall. — Named after Thomas Jefferson, "Father of 
the University of Virginia," this newest residence hall was opened 
in September, 1967. With Combs Science Hall and Bushnell 
Hall, it forms a new quadrangle on the central campus. 

Other Buildings 

Brompton. — Historic Brompton is the home of the Chan- 
cellor of the College. The estate is near the main campus and 
contains 174 acres of land on which stands a colonial brick man- 
sion, the first unit of which is believed to have been erected about 
1730. It was enlarged and completed in 1836 by Colonel John 
L. Marye and restored after purchase by the College in 1946. 

In a report by historians for the Fredericksburg and Spotsyl- 
vania National Military Park, it is stated that "no other house 
on the American continent is more important or better known 
in connection with military history, and few other homes are 
better examples of their type." 

Belmont. — Located in Falmouth across the river from Fred- 
ericksburg, Belmont is the estate where Gari Melchers, the inter- 
nationally renowned painter, lived and worked during the last 
sixteen years of his distinguished career. The main building may 
have been built as early as 1761, but sizeable additions and 
renovations have been made by subsequent owners. These in- 
cluded Mrs. Susannah FitzHugh Knox and the Ficklen family, 
who lived there for ninety-three years. As a memorial to her 
husband, Mrs. Corinne Lawton Mackall Melchers deeded Bel- 
mont and many of his paintings to the Commonwealth of Vir- 
ginia. The property is now administered by Mary Washington 
College. On occasion, when Belmont is open to the public, the 
Melchers paintings are on exhibition. 

Anne Fairfax. — Named in memory of the wife of George 
Washington's half-brother, Lawrence. Facing College Avenue 
on the central campus, it is currently the residence of the Dean 
of Students. 



42 Mary Washington College 

Ann Carter Lee Hall. — The Student Center is named in 
honor of the mother of Robert E. Lee, a descendant of Robert 
"King" Carter of colonial days. The Director of Student Affairs 
has her office here. Popularly known as the "Student Activities" 
building, it provides recreational areas that include a ball room, 
reception rooms, television facilities, a tea room, informal 
lounges, and the College book store. The building also contains 
a swimming pool, and bowling alleys. The offices and classrooms 
for the physical education department, and the offices for the 
major student organizations are situated here. 

Hugh Mercer Infirmary. — The College infirmary is named in 
honor of Dr. Hugh Mercer, a physician of Fredericksburg and 
a brigadier-general in the Revolutionary War. It provides ade- 
quate facilities for the treatment of ordinary diseases. Every room 
is provided with private or connecting bath. There are also 
isolation wards, solarium, sun deck, dining room, kitchen, doc- 
tor's office and nurse's room, and a nurses' station on every floor. 

Seacobeck Hall. — The dining hall, named after an Indian 
village at one time in this vicinity, has a reception room, five 
main dining rooms, a central kitchen, and a dining room for 
small groups. Adding to its efficiency are a bakery, ice plant, 
cold storage, and general storage areas. 

Spotswood. — Originally built as a home and used for a time 
as a small residence hall, this building is now occupied by the 
Alumnae Association. 

Amphitheatre. — The outdoor amphitheatre is located on the 
slope of a hill in a natural grove of trees just east of the Library. 

Post Office 

The College Station, a branch of the Fredericksburg Post 
Office, is located just across the street from the main campus.

Special Opportunities 

Art Exhibition Program 

Mary Washington College has had an active art exhibition 
program for many years. The annual exhibition of student art 
has a long and proud tradition. With the inauguration of Chan- 
cellor Grellet C. Simpson in October, 1956, the College initiated 
a program of exhibitions of contemporary art, featuring many 
of the leading professional artists from the United States and 
abroad. Purchases from these exhibitions form the nucleus of a 
permanent collection of art which provides a stimulating atmos- 
phere for the development of creative student work- 
in 1966, the exhibition program was further expanded to in- 
clude Western art of other periods in history, as well as art 
from other cultural traditions. The Sculpture of Primitive Peo- 
ples, an exhibition organized by the College with works lent by 
museums, private collectors, and art dealers, consisted of 177 
sculptures from Negro Africa, Oceania, and the Indians of North 
America. The Book and Twentieth-Century Master Artists in 
France, also organized by the College, was a select showing of 
rare books illustrated with original etchings, engravings, litho- 
graphs and other graphic media by major European artists work- 
ing in France, including Henri Mattisse, Pablo Picasso, Georges 
Braque, and Joan Miro. The books were exhibited through the 
courtesy of the Library of Congress and the great American art 
collector, Mr. J. Lessing Rosenwald. A third exhibition, organ- 
ized by the Museum of Modern Art in New York and entitled, 
Dada, Surrealism and Today, was comprised of prints, drawings, 
and watercolors by American, European, and Oriental artists 
representing some of the more controversial experimental trends 
in art since the late nineteenth century. The exhibition included 
works by Odilon Redon, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Salvador 
Dali, and Robert Rauschenberg, among others. 

The 1967-68 season opened in October with an exhibition of 
Master Prints of the 15th and 16th Centuries from the collections 
of the National Gallery of Art and the Library of Congress. 
Among the noted European artists represented were Albrecht 
Durer, Andrea Mantegna, Annibale Carracci, and Lucas van 



44 Mary Washington College 

Leyden. In March and April the Hon. Hugh Scott, United 
States Senator from Pennsylvania, will place on exhibition at 
the College a large part of his distinguished collection of Chinese 
art of the T'ang Dynasty. An exhibition of contemporary Ameri- 
can sculpture is planned for the early fall of 1968.

United States — India Women's College Exchange Program 

Mary Washington is fortunate in being a member of the 
consortium of American women's colleges which is engaged in a 



46 Mary Washington College 

faculty exchange program with a group of Indian women's col- 
leges.* With assistance from the Danforth Foundation and the 
Department of State, the project is administered in India by the 
United States Educational Foundation in India and in this 
country through the Committee on International Exchange of 
Persons. 

As a part of the program, Mr. Lewis P. Fickett, Jr., Associate 
Professor of Political Science at Mary Washington College, is 
lecturing at Miranda House in New Delhi during the 1967-68 
session. He is the fourth Mary Washington College faculty 
member to participate in the program. Scheduled to participate 
in the program during the 1968-69 session are Miss Barbara 
Alden, a library assistant; Mr. Peter Fellowes, Instructor in 
English; and Miss Judith Lee Nixon, Instructor in Health, 
Physical Education, and Recreation. 

Field Trips and Tours 

In addition to the regular program of instruction, the College 
sponsors visits to the local shrines and other places of interest, 
including those in the immediate vicinity of Fredericksburg, 
in Washington, D.C., Richmond, and other places easily accessi- 
ble. The air-conditioned college bus offers transportation to 
concerts and plays, and to historic sites such as Stratford and 
Williamsburg. 

The chairman of various academic departments have charge 
of the trips or tours used to supplement class instruction. These, 
also made in the college bus, reinforce the work in history, art, 
music, geology, and other fields. Students are able to attend con- 
ventions, visit other educational institutions, and take advantage 
of the cultural facilities in nearby cities. 

Art students visit the galleries in Washington and Richmond, 
music students attend musical events, students in dramatics 
attend plays, and students in economics and political science are 

•The participating institutions are Agnes Scott College, Barnard College, Bennett 
College, Connecticut College, Elmira College, Goucher College, Hood College, Mary 
Baldwin College, Mary Washington College, Mount Holyoke College, Queens College, 
Randolph-Macon Woman's College, Sweet Briar College, Western College for Women, 
and Vassar College in the United States; and Indraprastha College, Isabella Thoburn 
College, Miranda House, Women's Christian College, Madras, and University Women's 
College, Hyderabad, in India.

able to visit government or legislative sessions in these two capi- 
tal cities. Students in psychology and sociology go to such insti- 
tutions as St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Washington and the West- 
ern State Hospital in Staunton. Trips of a general cultural nature 
are often open to any interested undergraduates. 

Placement Bureau 

The Placement Bureau offers an advisory and placement serv- 
ice to graduates and prospective graduates seeking employment. 
A folder of detailed information is compiled for each graduate, 
and an effort is made to give as complete a picture as possible of 
the candidate's qualifications. 

Business executives, personnel directors, school superintend- 
ents, and others interested in employing graduates are invited 
to visit the College, consult the credentials compiled by the 
Bureau, and interview applicants. Confidential reports giving a 
full and accurate estimate of each applicant will be furnished 
on request of a prospective employer. 

The Bureau, which is under the supervision of the Director 
of Student Affairs, has a full-time secretary and an assistant secre- 
tary. 

Riding 

Through private stables the College provides an opportunity 
for expert riding instruction, both for credit and for recreation. 
Grey Horse Stables has an ample number of hunter type horses 
and facilities that include a clubhouse, rings, outside hunter and 
cross-country jumping courses, and shaded bridle trails. It also 
makes possible opportunities to show horses and to hunt with fox 
hounds. For further information see pages 148 to 149. 



Admission Requirements, Fees, 
Expenses, and Financial Assistance 

Admission Requirements and Procedures 

For admission to Mary Washington College the general re- 
quirements are as follows: 

1. Scholastic Preparation.— 

(a) The general academic requirements for admission are 
graduation from an accredited* high school or prep- 
aratory school, and credit for at least fifteen acceptable 
entrance units.** 

The fifteen academic units must include the follow- 
ing: English (four units) , college preparatory mathe- 
matics (three units selected from algebra, geometry, 
trigonometry and calculus, or a combination of these 
courses) , foreign language (two units in the same 
language) , social studies (one unit) , and science (one 
unit) . The remaining units are elective, but no credit 
is allowed for less than two units in a foreign lan- 
guage. 

A student attending a five-year school or one who 
begins traditional secondary school subjects in the 
eighth grade must complete seventeen academic units 
in order to meet the minimum requirements for ad- 
mission. In any case, eleven of the units must be dis- 
tributed as outlined in the preceding paragraph. 

The Committee on Admissions examines each appli- 
cation for evidence of qualifications appropriate to the 
purpose of the College and approves applicants— in- 
cluding those wishing to enter the five cooperative 
professional programs for which Mary Washington 
provides the liberal arts base— only if they seem pre- 
pared to succeed in a competitive, liberal curriculum. 

* Schools which are accredited by the state or regional accrediting agency. 
•* An entrance unit represents a year's successful study of a subject in a high school 
or preparatory school, the class meeting five times a week. 



Admission Requirements, Fees and Expenses 49 

In attempting to judge which applicants are most 
likely to succeed in competition with their fellow 
students, the Committee considers many factors. 
Among them are academic achievement, class rank, 
aptitude and achievement test results, a pattern of 
courses demonstrating interest and competence in the 
liberal arts and sciences, and secondary school recom- 
mendations. 

The Committee feels that the senior year is ex- 
tremely important, and such basic academic subjects 
as English, mathematics, laboratory sciences, and for- 
eign language, particularly the latter, should be con- 
tinued through the final term. 

(b) An applicant is required to take (1) the Scholastic 
Aptitude Test; (2) the achievement tests in English 
composition and in a foreign language, preferably the 
language to be continued in college; and (3) an 
achievement test in a field in which she wishes to 
demonstrate special aptitude or proficiency. The tests 
normally should be taken in December or January of 
the senior year. Under no circumstances can a test date 
later than the January administration in the senior 
year be used for purposes of admission in September. 
Candidates for enrollment in February must complete 
the tests no later than the December testing. A stu- 
dent is cautioned against the advisability of submitting 
the results of tests taken prior to the senior year un- 
less the scores are comparable to the averages main- 
tained by entering students at Mary Washington. A 
printed statistical class profile is available from the 
Director of Admissions. 

Information concerning the tests may be obtained 
from the College Entrance Examination Board, Box 
592, Princeton, N. J., or from secondary school coun- 
selors. In applying for the tests the applicant should 
specify that the results be sent to Mary Washington 
College. 



50 Mary Washington College 

(c) Applicants who are at least twenty-one years of age 
may be admitted as special students, provided they 
give evidence of serious purpose and show adequate 
preparation for a liberal arts program. All other appli- 
cants must meet the quantitative requirements out- 
lined in sections (a) and (b) . 

2. Character, Personality and Interests.— 

A recommendation by an appropriate secondary school 
official, including information about the student's 
character, interests, attitudes, and habits as a member 
of her school community, is required. The school offi- 
cials are also required to make an assessment of the 
applicant's academic promise. Provision for this infor- 
mation is made on the reverse side of the transcript 
form. Activities that reflect leadership or intellectual 
interests are impressive only if they reinforce sound 
achievement. Since Mary Washington operates under 
a successful honor system, assurance of personal in- 
tegrity is indispensable. 



3. Health.- 



Each student before entering the College is required 
to present a certificate from her family physician indi- 
cating the results of a recent physical examination. 
If this examination reveals the need for further infor- 
mation pertinent to the health and welfare of the 
student, such information should be included with the 
certificate. 

An up-to-date physical examination is required for 
each session a student attends the College. Although 
every effort is made to mail forms for completing this 
examination to all readmission students as well as 
freshman and transfer students, it is the responsibility 
of the individual student to see that the examination 
is undertaken and the results reported to the College 
on the appropriate form. Normally this form is mailed 
directly to the student around July 1. 



Admission Requirements, Fees and Expenses 51 

Directions for Application 

Upon request the Director of Admissions will send an appli- 
cation for admission, including a secondary school transcript 
form. The application should be filled in and signed by the 
applicant and her parent or guardian and returned directly to 
the College. The transcript blank should be filled in by the 
appropriate official of the school from which the applicant has 
been graduated or expects to be graduated and returned to the 
Director of Admissions. 

A non-refundable fee of ten dollars (read Application Fee, 
page 58, carefully) must accompany the application. No appli- 
cant will be considered by the Committee on Admissions until 
these forms, the appropriate test scores, and the fee have been 
received. 

Candidates are urged to submit a three-year transcript and 
personal application early in the first semester of the senior 
year. The Committee on Admissions will make preliminary 
evaluation of this material and will make a final decision upon 
receipt of the first semester grades and the results of the required 
College Board examinations. 

If the student's record is approved and living facilities are 
available, she will be notified of acceptance, usually by April 
1. Acceptance is for a specific session of the College. If the stu- 
dent does not enroll then, she must file a new application. 

Since the residential space is limited, many applicants are un- 
able to secure accommodations. No later than the first month of 
their senior year, students interested in applying should request 
all necessary forms from the Director of Admissions. In any case 
applications should be forwarded to the College well before 
December 1. The College will not accept applications submitted 
after February 1. 

Early Decision Plan 

Although a final decision regarding acceptance for admission 
is not made usually until after February 1, the Committee on 
Admissions will offer to especially well-qualified applicants the 
opportunity for an early decision, provided the individual stu- 
dent selected is prepared to certify, after notification, that she 



52 Mary Washington College 

has not applied to another college or that, if other applications 
have been submitted, they will be withdrawn. This statement 
must be accompanied by a one hundred dollar non-refundable 
advance room deposit. Students who accept the offer will be as- 
sured residential accommodations. Notifications of Early De- 
cision are made between October 1 and January 1. While a stu- 
dent may, at the time she submits an application, indicate in 
writing her interest in this plan, it should be noted that accept- 
ance on this basis is determined by the Committee on Admis- 
sions and that this procedure in no way obligates a student to 
submit an application only to Mary Washington. It should be 
emphasized, however, that a preliminary review is made of all 
applications received prior to December 1 and, on the basis of 
this review, the Committee offers Early Decision admission to 
qualified candidates. 

This offer in no way handicaps a student who declines it in 
order to consider admission to other colleges. The Committee on 
Admissions will process her application according to the usual 
admission procedure, and if she meets eligibility requirements, 
accept her for admission if residential space is still available. 

Directions for Readmission 

A student attending the College who expects to return the fol- 
lowing session must file an application for readmission. The form 
is mailed to the student in December and must be returned by 
March 1 with a ten-dollar application fee and a fifty-dollar ad- 
vance payment. Any student whose completed application form 
and fees are received after March 1 must be placed on a waiting 
list for residential accommodations; the College cannot assure 
these students that space will be available for the following ses- 
sion. 

The ten-dollar fee is non-refundable; the fifty-dollar advance 
payment, which is applied to the student's account for the fol- 
lowing session, is not refundable after May 1 unless the student 
is academically or residentially ineligible to return, or except 
in very unusual circumstances, based on the merits of the case 
as determined by the Comptroller. 



Admission Requirements, Fees and Expenses 53 

Readmission is approved for the session immediately follow- 
ing. If a student does not return at this time a subsequent ap- 
plication for readmission will be treated as a new application 
for admission. 

A student who has withdrawn from the College or is suspend- 
ed for other than academic reasons, is not automatically read- 
mitted but must make application. If she has attended another 
institution, the work there as well as that done at Mary Wash- 
ington College will be taken into consideration by the Commit- 
tee on Admissions. 

A student who withdraws from the College while on academic 
probation or under suspension for academic deficiency is not 
eligible for readmission. 

Although the College makes every effort to furnish readmission 
applications directly to enrolled students, it is the responsibility 
of the individual student to see that the above regulations are 
met. Application forms may be obtained from the Director of 
Admissions. 

Advanced Standing

Directions for Applying for Admission 
With Advanced Standing 

Upon request, the Director of Admissions will send an appli- 
cation for admission, a secondary school transcript form, and an 
Inter-College Confidential Form. The application, signed by the 
applicant and her parent or guardian, should be sent to the 
College. The transcript blank should be completed by the ap- 
propriate official of the secondary school from which the appli- 
cant was graduated and returned directly to the Director of 
Admissions. Information requested on the Inter-College Confi- 
dential Form should be provided by the Dean of Students or 
other appropriate official at the applicant's current college. The 
applicant should request that this, as well as a complete tran- 
script of all course work attempted to date, be forwarded to the 
Director of Admissions here. 

An application fee of ten dollars (read Application Fee, page 
58, carefully) should be sent to the Director of Admissions by the 
applicant. No applicant will be considered for enrollment by the 
Committee on Admissions until the completed application, all 
other forms, and the fee have been received. 

Applicants are urged to submit a transcript, Inter-College Con- 



Admission Requirements, Fees and Expenses 55 

fidential Form, and a personal application early in the first

Admissions will make preliminary evaluation of this material 
and will make a final decision upon receipt of the first semester 
or second quarter grades. 

If the applicant's record is approved by the Committee on 
Admissions and living facilities are available, the applicant will 
be notified of her acceptance, usually by April 1. Acceptance is 
for a specific session of the College. If the student does not en- 
roll then, she must file a new application. 

Transfer of Credits 

The College will accept credit for work completed at other 
institutions under the following conditions: 

1. For students admitted with advanced standing.

2. For students transferring credits from other branches of the 
University of Virginia. 

(a) Quality points will be recorded as earned. 

(b) Quality points earned at another branch of the Uni-

be charged an additional $50.00. 

No student will be admitted on a part-time basis who registers 
for more than nine semester hours of credit. Part-time students 
are not entitled to laundry, infirmary or dining hall services; 
neither are they entitled to free admission to those events 
covered by the Student Activity Fee. 

Students enrolled for classes for no credit will be charged at 
the same rate as those enrolled for credit. 

Classification as a Virginia Student 

Title 23, Sec. 7 of the 1950 Code of Virginia states: "No person 
shall be entitled to the admission privileges, or the reduced 
tuition charges, or any other privileges accorded by law only to 
residents or citizens of Virginia, in the State institutions of high- 
er learning unless such person has been domiciled in and is and 
has been an actual bona fide resident of Virginia for a period of 
at least one year prior to the commencement of the term, semes- 
ter or quarter for which any such privilege or reduced tuition 
charge is sought, provided that the governing boards of such 
institutions may require longer periods of residence and may 
set up additional requirements for admitting students." 

Classification as a Virginia student, as defined by The Rector 
and Board of Visitors, is as follows: 



58 Mary Washington College 

In order to be considered a Virginia student for any given 
semester, it is necessary that the applicant, who takes the legal 
residence of her father, shall have been domiciled in the State 
of Virginia for at least one year immediately preceding the be- 
ginning of that semester, and that the applicant's father must 
have been a bona fide taxpayer (paying income taxes on the 
father's total income) to the State of Virginia for the calendar 
year immediately preceding the calendar year of registration. 

A student who is twenty-one (21) years of age must show evi- 
dence that she has established residence, and that she has de- 
clared herself a legal resident of the State of Virginia. 

For tuition purposes, the married student takes the legal resi- 
dence of her husband unless she has shown evidence of estab- 
lishing her legal residence as different from that of her husband. 

Residence in the State for the purpose of securing an educa- 
tion does not qualify an individual for classification as a Vir- 
ginia student. 

Application Fee 

An application fee of $10.00 must accompany every applica- 
tion for admission, both from new students and from upper- 
classmen applying for readmission. No admission will be acted 
upon by the Committee on Admissions until this fee has been 
received. 

This application fee of $10.00 is to be paid by every new stu- 
dent whether she lives on or off the campus. It is a payment en- 
tirely separate from other fees and cannot be deducted from 
charges due on entrance to the College. THIS FEE IS NOT RE- 
FUNDABLE, but is applied to the cost of processing the appli- 
cation for admission. 

Since residence accommodations are limited, making it neces- 
sary to deny admission to many applicants each year, it is ad- 
visable to comply with the requirements for admission (see Di- 
rections for Application, page 51) as far in advance of the open- 
ing of the session as is practicable. 

Contingent Fee 

A contingent fee of $10.00 is charged all students and may not 
be deducted from the charges due on admission to the College. 



Admission Requirements, Fees and Expenses 59 

Students will be held responsible for the care and preservation 
of College property and, as far as possible, all damage to build- 
ings and equipment will be repaired at the expense of students 
causing such damage. At the end of the session, the whole or 
such part of the contingent fee as may be due the student will 
be returned. 

Terms of Payment 

All fees, room rent, and board are payable in advance by the 
semester. 

Statements for students' fees and expenses for the first semes- 
ter will be mailed the latter part of August. Payment in full is 
requested for the first semester by September 1, for the second 
semester by February 1. Scholarships and loans are applied one- 
half to each semester. This credit should appear on the state- 
ment mailed by the College. 

Failure to meet payments when due or to make other satis- 
factory arrangements may result in suspension of the student 
from College until the account is brought up to date. 

Remittance should be made to Mary Washington College and 
sent to the Comptroller. 

New Students: After notification of acceptance from the 
Director of Admissions, a payment of $100.00 is required. No 
student will be assigned a residence hall room until the payment 
of $100.00 has been received. This payment is not refundable, but 
is applied toward the fees for the session immediately following. 
Exceptions to this policy will be made only in the most unusual 
circumstances, based on the merits of the case as determined by 
the Comptroller and the Director of Admissions. 

Returning Students: All students applying for readmission 
are required to make a $50.00 advance payment by March 1. This 
payment is not refundable after May 1, except in unusual cir- 
cumstances, based on the merits of the case as determined by the 
Comptroller.

or the Registrar finds it necessary to change the student's sched- 
ule.

the College Book Store. These cannot be included in a student's 
college account but must be paid for in cash at the time of pur- 
chase. 

Student Bank. — It is suggested that students deposit their per- 
sonal funds in the Student Bank. Deposit books are furnished 
by the College, and personal funds are handled according to 
savings account procedures. The Bank, which is under the juris- 
diction of the Comptroller's Office, is open at certain hours daily 
through the week. 

Financial Assistance 

Scholarships, Loan Funds, and Student Employment 

This College considers it a privilege to extend financial assis- 
tance to capable young women who are not able to meet in full 
the expenses of attendance. Scholarships, loan funds, and student 
employment are available. 

College Scholarship Service. — Mary Washington College 
participates in the College Scholarship Service, which handles 
the Confidential Statement submitted by parents in support of 
application for financial assistance. 

All applicants for scholarships, loans, and student employ- 
ment are requested to use these forms prepared by the College 
Scholarship Service. Entering students may obtain them from 
their high school principal or guidance counselor. Students now 
attending Mary Washington may obtain these statements from 
the Director of Financial Aid, or by writing to the College 
Scholarship Service, P. O. Box 176, Princeton, New Jersey 08540. 



62 Mary Washington College 

Eligibility and Tenure. — Scholarships and loans are limited, 
and are awarded to full-time students on the basis of ability, 
character, and need. 

Applications for student employment, scholarships, and loans 
should be made before March 1 and addressed to the Director 
of Financial Aid unless indicated otherwise in the description of 
the scholarship. 

Students receiving financial aid are required to maintain a 
high standard of scholarship, a clear record in regard to disci- 
pline and, in case of employment, render satisfactory service. 

A student receiving financial aid of any kind through the 
College who fails to meet any of these conditions must relinquish 
the scholarship, part-time position, or any other type of assistance 
from the College. 

No action may be taken on a request for financial assistance 
until the student has been approved for admission to the College 
by the Committee on Admissions. 

Because scholarships, part-time positions, and loans are 
awarded for only one session at a time, separate application must 
be filed each year. 

Scholarships 

Alpha Psi Omega Scholarship Award. — The Mary Wash- 
ington Cast of Alpha Psi Omega will award an annual scholar- 
ship to the junior or senior major in Dramatic Arts and Speech 
who has maintained a high academic average, given evidence of

Mary Washington College. 

This award of at least $50, is made in the spring by the Schol- 
arship Committee of Alpha Psi Omega. It will be credited to the 
recipient's account for the following session.

dents from free foreign countries, preferably Latin Americans, 
or to students whose major interests and work lie in the fields 
of History or Political Science. The recipient of this scholarship 
will devote to the James Monroe Memorial Foundation so much 
of her time and services as the authorities of Mary Washington 
College shall prescribe. 

This scholarship was awarded for the session of 1967-1968 to 
Lelea Kay Bowling. 

Chancellor's Alumnae Fund. — This fund was established in 
1961 by the Mary Washington College Alumnae Association. 
Awards are made at the discretion of the Chancellor, to whom 
inquiries should be addressed. Grants may be made to students,

alumnae, or faculty of Mary Washington College for graduate 
or special study. 

The Chandler Scholarship.— Algernon B. Chandler, Presi- 
dent of the College from 1919 until his death in 1928, made a 
bequest of $1,000 to the College to be invested by the Comptrol- 
ler. Annually, the proceeds are to be used toward the education 
of a junior or senior student. In selecting the recipient, the fol- 
lowing points are taken into consideration: scholarship, per- 
sonality, attitude, and inability to continue college without as- 
sistance. 

The Hatton Lathrop Clark Scholarship. — Established 
through the generosity of Mrs. Hatton Lathrop Clark, this is a 
full scholarship to be awarded to a Virginia student who, in the 
judgment of the Chancellor of the College, is deserving of such 
recognition and who is in need of financial aid in order to com- 
plete her degree. Inquiry may be made through the Director of 
Financial Aid. 

Educational Opportunity Grants. — Established by the High- 
er Education Act of 1965, the Educational Opportunity Grants 
Program is designed for students "of exceptional financial need, 
who for lack of financial means of their own or of their families 
would be unable to enter or remain in college without an Edu- 
cational Opportunity Grant." Student eligibility and grant 
stipends are determined initially by the expected contribution 
from the income and assets of the student's parents. Further 
information may be obtained from the Director of Financial 
Aid.

plete their education without financial assistance. 



66 Mary Washington College 

Loan Funds 

Alpha Phi Sigma Loan Fund. — The Gamma Chapter of this 
honorary scholarship fraternity has established a loan fund of 
$100. Preference is given to members of the fraternity, though 
not limited to them. As the Chapter is able, additional units of 
1 100 will be made available. This loan is awarded by the Direc- 
tor of Financial Aid. 

Rada Brown Memorial Loan Fund. — The senior class of 
1962 established, with a gift of $500, this loan fund in memory 
of Rada Brown, who died in her senior year. Loans are made at 
the discretion of the Chancellor with preference given to resi- 
dents of Rockbridge County, Virginia, or members of the senior 
class. 

Cook Loan Fund. — The Kappa Sigma Chapter of the Chi 
Beta Phi Honorary Fraternity has established a loan in memory 
of Dr. Roy S. Cook, for many years a member of the Mary 
Washington College faculty. Juniors and seniors majoring in 
biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics are eligible to ap- 
ply. Application forms may be obtained from the Director of 
Financial Aid. 

Junior and Senior Loan Fund. — A loan fund of $200 was 
established by the class of 1948 for juniors and seniors with satis- 
factory scholastic standing. The loan bears interest at the rate of 
four per cent, and is to be repaid within two years after the date 
of graduation. 

Elizabeth and Margaret Kalnen Loan Fund. — Established 
by Elizabeth Kalnen, of the Class of 1937, for benefit of seniors 
in need of financial assistance. The fund provides a maximum 
loan of $200 at two per cent interest, to be repaid within one

Maryland-Suburban Chapter Alumnae Loan Fund. — The 

Maryland-Suburban Chapter of the Mary Washington College 
Alumnae Association has established an annual loan of $100 for 
a junior or senior student from the Maryland suburban area 
(designated as Montgomery County and Prince Georges County, 
Maryland, or the District of Columbia) . 



Admission Requirements, Fees and Expenses 67 

If there are no applicants from this designated area, it may be 
awarded to some other worthy non- Virginia student selected by 
the College. This loan will carry an interest rate of three per cent 
and is repayable within one year after date of graduation. 

Methodist Student Loan Fund. — Any Methodist student 
registered as a full-time candidate in an accredited institution 
of higher education may apply for a loan. An applicant is re- 
quired to have a grade average of "C" during the semester im- 
mediately preceding application. A first semester freshman must 
have an average of "B" for the four years of high school. All 
loans are made at the Nashville office of the Board of Education 
and are subject to the approval of that office. The official repre- 
sentative for the Loan Fund, the Director of Wesley Foundation, 
has the necessary loan forms. 

The National Defense Student Loan Program. — The pur- 
pose of the National Defense Student Loan Program is to make 
it possible for worthy and capable college students in need of 
financial assistance to begin or continue their college education. 

The law requires that each borrower be a full-time under- 
graduate or graduate student, that she be in need of the amount 
of her loan to pursue her course of study, and that she be, in 
the opinion of her institution, capable of maintaining good 
standing in her chosen studies. The law further provides that 
special consideration in the selection of loan recipients be given 
to (a) students with a superior academic background who ex- 
press a desire to teach in elementary or secondary schools and 
(b) students whose academic background indicates a superior 
capacity or preparation in science, mathematics, engineering, or 
a modern foreign language. Decision on the amount granted rests 
with the Committee on Financial Aid after reviewing the appli- 
cant's Confidential Statement. 

The borrower must sign a note for her loan. The law itself 
establishes certain basic conditions covering student loans, in- 
cluding a requirement that repayment of the loan begin one year 
after the borrower ceases to be a full-time student and be com- 
pleted within ten years. No interest on the student loan may 
accrue prior to the beginning of the repayment period, and in- 
terest thereafter is to be paid at the rate of three per cent per 



68 Mary Washington College 

year. The borrower's obligation to repay her loan is cancelled 
in the event of her death or permanent and total disability. 

The National Defense Education Act contains a further pro- 
vision that up to fifty per cent of the loan (plus interest) may 
be cancelled in the event the borrower becomes a full-time teach- 
er in a public elementary or secondary school. Such cancellation 
is at the rate of ten per cent a year up to five years. 

Applications for a National Defense Student Loan may be 
obtained from the Director of Financial Aid. A student must be 
approved for entrance to the College by the Committee on Ad- 
missions before action may be taken on an application. These 
loans are available to in-state and out-of-state students. 

State Scholarships for Teachers. — These scholarships are in 
the nature of loans which are cancelled at a fixed rate for each 
year that the recipient teaches in Virginia after graduation. Ap- 
plicants must be residents of Virginia and meet the qualifications 
established by the State Board of Education. Application forms 
and copies of regulations may be obtained from the Director of 
Financial Aid. 

Esther Swaffin Memorial Loan Fund. — This loan fund, 
established by the Senior Class of 1965 as a memorial to Esther 
Swaffin, is available to juniors and seniors. No interest is charged, 
but repayment of the loans must be made within one year after 
graduation. 

The Alpha Tate Loan Fund. — The Alpha Tate Loan Fund 
given by the First District of the Virginia Federation of Women's 
Clubs in the amount of $500 provides two loans of $250 each. 
First consideration is given applicants from Roanoke City or 
the twenty southwest Virginia counties. Applications may be 
obtained from the Director of Financial Aid. 

YWCA Loan Fund. — The Young Women's Christian Asso- 
ciation of the College has established two loans of $100 each for 
worthy seniors. Bearing two per cent interest, they are payable 
within one year after graduation. The money may then be re- 
loaned to other seniors and thereby perpetuate the fund. These 
loans are awarded through the Director of Financial Aid. 



Admission Requirements, Fees and Expenses 69 

Student Employment 

The College has a number of opportunities for part-time em- 
ployment available to students with a satisfactory academic rec- 
ord. Many of them, which include positions with the library, 
dining hall and faculty offices, pay from approximately $350 
to $500 for the nine-month session. 



Academic Information 

Organization 

Semester Plan 

The College is organized on the semester plan, and students 
may enter at the beginning of either semester. (See College 
Calendar.) Students who enter the second semester in February 
are given a special orientation program to enable them to adjust 
readily to the College. Beginning sections of the basic courses 
are offered that semester. 

Summer Session 

The Summer Session is an integral part of the school year. 
The courses offered have the same credit and the same standard 
of work as those offered in the regular session. Classes are offered 
on Monday through Friday. 

Although the majority of students spend four years in college, 
the work for a degree at Mary Washington College can be com- 
pleted in three calendar years by attendance at three general 
sessions and three summer sessions. It is possible to complete a 
semester's work in each of three courses by attending the eight 
week's term. There is a vacation period of five weeks between 
the close of the summer session and the beginning of the fall 
semester. 

High school graduates who would normally enter college in 
September may begin with the summer session in June and 
complete a substantial portion of the first semester's work before 
the fall term. 

Terminology 

Semester Hours. — All credit toward graduation is calculated 
in semester hours. A semester hour represents one hour of class 
instruction (or two hours of laboratory work) a week for one 
semester, or apprwomately eighteen weeks. A college course that 
meets three times a week for a semester carries three semester 



Academic Information 71 

hours credit. A course that meets three times weekly throughout 
the session (two semesters) carries six semester hours credit. 

Required Course. — A course that every candidate for a degree 
must complete, regardless of the subject in which she plans to 
major. It is strongly recommended that all required courses be 
completed during the freshman and sophomore years. 

Major Program. — A field of concentration or specialization to 
which a student devotes a large proportion of her program of 
studies in the junior and senior years. Usually, a major program 
consists of 24 semester hours in the major subject (in addition 
to any credits that may be included in the general requirements 
for graduation) and 12 semester hours in related fields. 

Elective. — A course not specifically required for a degree or 
for the major program which the student is following. 

Course. — Subject or portion of a subject as outlined in this 
bulletin for the session or for a semester. 

Quality Point. — A qualitative measure of the student's prog- 
ress toward a degree, awarded on the basis of the grade of schol- 
arship attained. The number of quality points must be at least 
double the number of semester hours required and attempted 
for graduation. 

Unit. — A basis for evaluating high school work. A unit repre- 
sents a minimum of five 40-minute periods of class work a week 
for at least 36 weeks. 

Academic Regulations 

Classification of Students 

Freshmen. Students with fewer than 28 semester hours of 
credit. 

Sophomores. Students with from 28 to 57 semester hours of 
credit. 

Juniors. Students with from 58 to 89 semester hours of credit. 

Seniors. Students with as many as 90 semester hours of credit. 



72 Mary Washington College 

Specials. — Students enrolled at the college who are not con- 
sidered degree candidates. 

Student Load 

A student should plan her class schedule carefully each semes- 
ter in consultation with her faculty adviser, taking care both 
to ensure her progress toward graduation and to avoid a heavier 
academic load than she can carry. The faculty adviser must 
approve the student's schedule before she completes her registra- 
tion. 

In her first year of college, a student should register for not 
less than fourteen nor more than seventeen credit hours a semes- 
ter. After the first year she should carry from fifteen to eighteen 
credit hours a semester. 

No student living in a College residence hall during the regu- 
lar session may carry less than twelve semester hours without 
permission from the Dean of the College. 

Excess Hours 

Only in exceptional circumstances will a student be allowed 
to carry excess hours, i.e., more than seventeen hours in the first 
year, more than eighteen hours after the first year. Permission 
to carry excess hours will be considered only for a student who 
has made a "B" average for the preceding semester and who 
applies to the Dean of the College in writing for such permission, 
stating her reasons for wishing to exceed the maximum and 
outlining a proposed schedule of courses for the rest of her 
college career. This application will be acted upon by a commit- 
tee made up of the Dean of the College, the Associate Dean 
of the College, and the chairman of the department in which the 
student is majoring. 

Change of Schedule or Courses 

A student's academic program and schedule of classes must 
be approved each semester by her faculty adviser. After it has 
been reviewed and accepted by the Registrar, a schedule may not 
be changed without permission. 



Academic Information 73 

A student wishing to make a change should consult her faculty 
adviser and get his written permission to drop or add any course. 
During the first week of the semester she must present this per- 
mission to the Registrar's Office; after the first week she must 
present it to the Dean or Associate Dean of the College for 
approval. 

No credit is allowed for a course for which the student has 
not officially registered and which is not listed on the class 
schedule filed in the Registrar's Office. No course may be added 
after the first three weeks of classes. 

If a course is dropped after the first three weeks of a semester, 
a grade of "F" will be recorded unless the instructor certifies 
that the student was passing at the time of withdrawal. An excep- 
tion to this rule may be made for protracted absence because of 
illness. If a course is dropped during the last three weeks of 
classes, a grade of "F" will be recorded. 

A student dropping out of a course without permission will 
automatically receive a grade of "F." 

Grading 

A student's class performance determines the final grade in 
any course. Class performance is based on the quality of a 
student's work as indicated by recitation grades, written tests, 
examinations, laboratory work, term papers, etc. 

Scholarship standing is indicated as follows: 

"A" is given for work of unusual excellence. 

"B" is given for work distinctly above average. 

"C" denotes work of average or medium quality. 

"D" is the lowest passing mark and represents work of below 
average quality. 

"E" denotes that the work has been unsatisfactory and that a 
condition has been incurred. When the condition is removed, a 
grade of "D" is recorded. Conditions not made up by the end 
of the following semester automatically become "F." 

"Inc." Incomplete. Incomplete work not made up by the end 
of the following semester automatically becomes "F." 



74 Mary Washington College 

"F" denotes failure and requires that the subject be taken 
again and passed before credit can be allowed. 

"S" Satisfactory. This indicates that the course requirement 
has been successfully met. 

"U" Unsatisfactory. This means that the requirement has not 
been successfully met and an additional course must be taken. 

Credits earned with a grade of "S" are counted towards grad- 
uation but carry no quality points. 

Scholarship Quality Points 

A candidate for a degree must have earned twice as many 
quality points as semester hours attempted before being per- 
mitted to graduate. This means, in general, that the work of 
the student must be equal at least to an average grade of "C." 
Courses taken in fulfillment of the major program requirements 
must also average at least "C." 

The following Quality Point system is effective September 19, 
1966, in this College. This does not apply to work transferred 
from other colleges and accepted by this institution for credit. 

This system is both objective and simple, and enables students 
to keep a constant check on their standing and to know at all 
times whether or not they are meeting the qualitative standard 
as well as the quantitative standard of the College. 

For each semester hour earned with a grade of "A" four 
quality points are allowed. 

For each semester hour earned with a grade of "B" three 
quality points are allowed. 

For each semester hour earned with a grade of "C" two quality 
points are allowed. 

For each semester hour earned with a grade of "D" one quality 
point is allowed. 

In each case the number of semester hours credits in each 
course is multiplied by the number of quality points assigned to 
the grade made in that course. For example, "A" in a course 



Academic Information 75 

for which three semester hours credit are allowed entitles the 
student to twelve quality points. In this same course a grade of 
"B" would entitle the student to nine quality points; "C" to six 
quality points; and "D" to three quality points. No quality 
points are earned for grades of "F," "S," or "Incomplete." 

Transfer students must also earn, at this institution, at least 
twice as many quality points as hours attempted to meet the 
College degree requirements. 

A permanent record of quality points earned as well as semes- 
ter hours attempted and earned is kept in the Registrar's Office. 
This information is available to students and parents at all 
times. 

Class Attendance 

Regular class attendance is expected of all students except in 
case of illness or other emergency. Students are responsible for 
the material covered in a course whether present or not. 

Requests to be absent or explanations for absence from class 
should be made to the instructor teaching the course, except in 
the case of final examinations, which must be taken according to 
schedule unless specifically excused by the Office of the Dean. 

All excuses for absences must be submitted within three days 
after the absence has occurred. 

Absences from class immediately preceding or following a 
holiday are especially discouraged. Students should consult the 
college calendar in making plane and train reservations. Students 
are not permitted to shift classes or examinations to expedite 
leaving the College for the weekend, holidays, or any other 
purpose. 

Medical excuses for both residential and day students must be 
submitted to the College Infirmary, which will make a report to 
the Registrar's Office for transmission to each instructor. 

No student may receive credit for a course in which she has 
missed more than one-fourth of the class meetings, regardless of 
the reason. 

Students whose class attendance is unnecessarily irregular may 
be requested to withdraw from the College. 



76 Mary Washington College 

Reports, Deficiencies and Failures 

A careful record is kept in the office of the Registrar of 
academic work of all students. 

Regular reports are mailed to parents and students at the end 
of each semester. These include a record of the student's semes- 
ter standing and her cumulative totals of credits, quality points, 
etc. 

In addition, parents and students are notified of unsatisfactory 
or deficient work about the middle of each semester. In this way, 
students are given every opportunity and encouragement to make 
up any deficiencies or probable failures before the end of the 
semester. 

Students with academic deficiencies are urged to consult fre- 
quently with the academic officials of the College and to make 
every effort to remove these deficiencies. In order to be gradu- 
ated it is necessary for the student to maintain a general average 
of at least "C" and also an average of at least "C" on all of the 
courses taken in the major subject. 

The Dean of the College, the Associate Dean, and the Regis- 
trar are ready at all times to confer with students or parents 
regarding academic problems. 

Academic Probation and Scholastic Achievement 
Necessary to Remain in College 

To remain in college in good standing a student must make 
satisfactory progress toward graduation; that is, she must com- 
plete between 14 and 17 semester hours each semester of her 
freshman year, and between 15 and 18 semester hours in each 
of six other semesters. A student must have completed at least 
28 semester hours at the end of her freshman year, 58 at the end 
of her sophomore year, and 90 at the end of her junior year to 
be in good standing. 

To be classified as a sophomore, she must complete at least 28 
semester hours; as a junior, at least 58 semester hours; and as a 
senior, at least 90 semester hours. 

If a student in the first semester fails more than four semester 
hours of work, she will be placed on academic probation for 



Academic Information 77 

the succeeding semester. After the first semester, a student will 
be placed on probation whenever her total number of credits 
falls below what is regarded as satisfactory progress. (See para- 
graph 1 above.) If her total number of credits falls more than 
six semester hours below satisfactory progress, she will be sus- 
pended. 

If a student in any semester fails more than four semester 
hours or receives grades of "D," "E," or "F" on more than 
seven semester hours of work, she will be placed on academic 
probation although her total credits and quality points meet 
the requirements for satisfactory progress toward a degree. 

Students who are failing to meet satisfactory progress require- 
ments may, under the conditions indicated below, enroll for 
summer courses to establish eligibility for readmission in good 
standing, or, in the case of suspension, on probation. 

Students are expected to earn at least a "C" average, which 
means the number of quality points must be at least two times 
the number of credit hours attempted. (See page 74 for discus- 
sion of quality points.) If at any time during the student's first 
five semesters the total number of her scholastic quality points 
falls more than 11 below twice the total number of her semester 
hours attempted, the student will be placed on academic proba- 
tion. If the total number of quality points falls more than 19 
below twice the total of her semester hours attempted, she will 
be suspended from the College. 

A student's academic standing is evaluated at the end of each 
semester and probation or suspension, if incurred, is for the 
semester immediately following. 

A student on academic probation may not take more than 16 
semester hours without permission from the Dean. 

A student who withdraws from the College while on academic 
probation is not eligible for readmission. 

Deficiencies in quality points must be made up at this insti- 
tution, as credits and quality points earned at other colleges are 
not used in computing the quality point ratio. The quality point 
ratio is determined by dividing the number of quality points 
earned at Mary Washington by the number of credits attempted 
at Mary Washington. Students should attend summer sessions at 
this College to make up quality point deficiencies. 



78 Mary Washington College 

As will be noted above, a student may be placed on probation 
or suspended for either a semester hour or quality point defici- 
ency. Under ordinary circumstances a student will not be granted 
probationary status for more than two semesters. A student who 
is suspended for the first time may be readmitted on probation 
by earning in the summer school of this College at least eight 
semester hours and sixteen quality points. A student seeking such 
reinstatement must do so in the summer session immediately 
following the academic suspension. 

A student must pass 90 semester hours and have earned quality 
points equal to or in excess of two times the number of hours 
attempted by the end of her sixth semester in college in order 
to be a senior in good standing. A student who has 90 semester 
hours passed and is no more than 12 quality points below two 
times the total number of hours attempted may register as a 
senior on academic probation. 

Requirements for graduation are 124 semester hours with 248 
quality points. If additional semester hours are attempted, they 
must be matched by a number of quality points equal to at least 
two times the hours attempted. Students are encouraged to 
complete more than the 124 semester hours required for a degree. 

The academic and advisory officials of the College are eager to 
be of assistance to students on probation and to help them 
achieve the proper level of academic success. A student on proba- 
tion will be expected to confer periodically with the Dean or the 
Associate Dean of the College, as well as with her faculty adviser, 
to work out a program directed toward the attainment of good 
academic standing. Remedial work may be recommended. It 
may be advisable for a student to restrict her extracurricular 
activities in order to have more time available for academic work. 
Any measures taken will not be imposed as penalties, but will 
be arrived at on consultation with the student in the hope that 
they will contribute to her academic success. 

In exceptional circumstances, the regulations outlined in this 
section may be waived at the discretion of the Dean of the 
College. Such waiver will be considered only if the student 
makes written application with a full statement of the facts 
pertinent to her case. 



Academic Information 79 

Withdrawal 

Voluntary Withdrawal. — A student desiring to withdraw 
from College must have the advance consent of her parent or 
guardian if she is a minor; she must have informed the Dean 
of Students in any case. 

Enforced Withdrawal. — Students who are persistently neg- 
lectful of duty or who continuously fail to measure up to the 
scholastic and other standards of the College may be requested 
to withdraw or not to return to college. 

Marriage. — A student entering into marriage prior to college 
enrollment or during attendance at college (including summer 
and other vacation periods) is ineligible to remain in residence 
except with permission of the College officials. Any change in 
status must be discussed personally in advance with the Dean 
of Students. Each case is considered on its individual merits. 



Recognition of Academic Achievement 

The Dean's List 

A student who attains a grade point average of 3.50 or better 
for any semester with no grade below "C" is placed on the Dean's 
List of Honor Students. 

Intermediate and Final Honors 

A junior at Mary Washington College who has achieved a 
3.75 grade-point average in her freshman and sophomore years 
is awarded "Intermediate Honors" at the Chancellor's Convoca- 
tion held during the first week of the session. 

Similarly, a student who attains a 3.75 grade-point average in 
her junior and senior years is awarded "Final Honors" at the 
graduating exercises held at the end of the session. 

Honors Work 

A student who has maintained a grade point average of 3.25 
in her major and related fields and a general grade point average 



80 Mary Washington College 

of 3.00 during five semesters and who has shown ability for 
independent study may apply for permission to do honors work 
in her senior year. This project will take the place of six semester 
hours (eight semester hours in the laboratory sciences) of course 
work in the major and may be carried on in an advanced seminar 
or under individual supervision by a faculty member, according 
to the decision of the Committee on Honors of the department 
concerned. 

To make application for honors study, the student must re- 
ceive the approval of the Committee on Honors of the depart- 
ment in which she is majoring and must obtain permission of the 
Committee on Academic Excellence, to which she will submit a 
statement of her aims in the work which she wishes to undertake. 
Since this application must be completed not later than May 1 
of her junior year, the student planning to do honors work 
should consult her departmental adviser early in that year. 

Evidence of achievement in honors work will be shown by the 
presentation of a research thesis, a series of brief scholarly essays, 
or a creative project to the departmental committee on honors. 
Upon the approval of this committee, the Committee on Academ- 
ic Excellence may recommend that the student be awarded a 
degree with honors. If the departmental committee does not 
regard the thesis or similar project as deserving of honors recog- 
nition, the committee will determine the grade to be given. 

Final authority over organization, approval and judgment of 
study for honors is vested in the Committee on Academic Excel- 
lence.

Beidler, of Biglerville, Pennsylvania. 

Requirements For Graduation 

1. An applicant for a degree must have credit for 124 semester 
hours of work and a minimum of 248 scholarship quality points. 
In other words, the number of quality points must equal or 
exceed by two times the number of semester hours attempted. 
This means, in general, that the work of the student must be 
equal at least to a grade point average of 2.00. Courses taken 
in fulfillment of the major program requirements must also 
average at least 2.00. In computing the grade point average, only 
credits earned at Mary Washington College are considered. 
Courses taken elsewhere do not raise or lower the average at 
Mary Washington College. 



82 Mary Washington College 

2. The number of quality points earned in courses in the 
subject in which the candidate is majoring must equal or exceed 
by two times the number of credit hours attempted in that 
subject. 

3. A student who fails to earn the requisite number of scholar- 
ship quality points by the time she completes the courses specified 
for a degree may take sufficient additional work to earn the 
required number of scholarship quality points, but such courses 
must be approved by the Dean. 

4. A student who has transferred credits from another college 
must earn two times as many scholarship quality points at Mary 
Washington College as there are additional hours of credit 
attempted for a degree. 

5. The responsibility for meeting the requirements for a 
degree rests on the student. 

6. A formal application for a degree must be filed in the 
Registrar's Office by the end of the second semester of the junior 
year. 

7. A total of at least two years of residence (four semesters) 
at Mary Washington College is required for a degree, and except 
in the case of cooperative programs, the last semester of a 
student's work must be done in residence at this college. At least 
eighteen semester hours in the major subject must be completed 
here. 

8. Four credits in physical education are required for a degree. 
Courses taken to satisfy degree requirements cannot be counted 
also as part of the major program. College credit in physical 
education for students not majoring in this field is limited to 
four hours of credit in activity courses. Students are expected to 
complete the required courses in physical education during their 
first two college years. 

So that a student may enjoy a varied and balanced physical 
education program, it is recommended that she arrange her work 
to include one team sport, one individual sport, one rhythmic 
activity, and one intermediate or advanced course in any of these 
activities. 



Student Lif e. Organizations, and 
Activities 



General 

Life at Mary Washington 

Mary Washington, like most colleges, has its own way of life. 
It is important, therefore, that prospective students and their 
parents become familiar with its purposes and objectives before 
submitting applications for admission. 

As a liberal arts college and a coordinate part of the University 
of Virginia, Mary Washington aims at a high level of scholar- 
ship. It is committed to the ideals of individual responsibility 
and the pursuit of excellence. Its ultimate goal is to teach young 
women not only how to make a living but how to live by these 
ideals. 

The administration is interested in limiting the enrollment 
to students who will be successful here, who can and will take 
advantage of the many opportunities offered for intellectual 
development, and who wish to share on the traditions, standards, 
and objectives of the college. 

Student Welfare 

The College strives to create and maintain an atmosphere of 
friendliness and helpfulness on the part of students and faculty. 
It is expected that students will at all times uphold the stand- 
ards, traditions, and regulations of the College and that parents 
will cooperate in these matters. A student is likewise held respon- 
sible for the conduct of her guests on campus. 

Insofar as possible, the College shares with parents or guardi- 
ans the responsibility of helping the student to uphold the stand- 
ards and abide by the regulations of the institution. The fact 
that a student is of legal age or is paying her own expenses in 
no way alters this relationship. 



84 Mary Washington College 

The College Administration reserves the right to request any 
student to withdraw whose conduct or general attitude is con- 
sidered unsatisfactory, even though no specific charge is made 
against her. 

Counselling and Guidance 

The College attempts to provide adequate counselling and 
guidance without taking from the student the responsibility for 
making her own decisions. A Faculty Committee on Academic 
Counselling and Guidance helps to establish policies in this area. 

When she enters college, each new student is assigned to a 
faculty adviser, who, as far as possible, is an instructor in the 
field of the student's major interest. The adviser helps the 
student with her program of studies and is available for regular 
consultation throughout the year. Freshmen in particular are 
urged to maintain close contact with their faculty advisers. 

Ordinarily the student retains the same adviser during her 
sophomore year, but she may change at any time upon request. 
As an upperclass student she will be under the direction of the 
chairman of her major department or someone designated by 
him at the time she receives permission to major. 

Students are also invited to seek advice from the residence 
hall directors in their halls, the various deans, and members of 
the faculty. Although no sharp distinction is made, students 
usually confer with those in the Offices of the Dean of Students 
and of the Director of Student Affairs on matters concerning 
personal and social life, with the Dean or Associate Dean on 
academic matters. 

College Theatre 

The College Theatre is an integral part of the Department of 
Dramatic Arts and Speech and affords students the opportunity 
to appear before the public in major productions of plays by 
the world's great authors, and to gain practical experience in 
the various phases of theatrical production. 

The Department of Dramatic Arts and Speech requires that 
all students engaged in the dramatic or radio activities of the 
department and its organizations maintain at least a "C" average. 



Student Life, Organizations, and Activities 85 

Any student not maintaining this average during the current 
semester or preceding semester will not be allowed to participate 
in the activities. 

Mary Washington College maintains a radio broadcasting 
workshop, with studios and a control room in duPont Hall. 
Through the cooperation of stations WFVA and WFLS, pro- 
grams are broadcast regularly from the college studios. Both 
students and faculty participate. 

Social Life 

In order that students may receive a well-rounded education, 
opportunities are offered for entertainment, recreation, and a 
general broadening of the intellectual life. 

The social calendar for the year includes receptions, dances 
and teas; programs by the departments, such as music, dramatics, 
and physical education; lectures; a regularly scheduled showing 
of outstanding films, both foreign and American; May Day festi- 
vities; informal inter-class parties; club parties; hikes; picnics; 
tennis, golf, swimming, and horseback riding. 

In the course of the year there are three formal dances. Two 
of these dances are open to the entire student body; the other is 
sponsored by the junior class. In addition to the formal dances, 
there are occasional informal dances and mixers throughout 
the year. 

A varied concert and lecture series is provided by the College 
without extra cost to students. This includes programs by sym- 
phony orchestras, vocal and instrumental artists, and dramatic 
groups. 

Automobiles. — Seniors with a minimum of ninety (90) credit 
hours may bring their own or family automobiles to the College. 
These must be registered immediately in the Office of the Dean 
of Students. All full-time day students must also register cars. 

Bicycles. — Any student with a bicycle is required to license it 
in accordance with the regulations of the City of Fredericksburg 
and the campus police. 



86 Mary Washington College 

Religious Life 

This non-sectarian institution, recognizing the religious free- 
dom of the students, makes no attempt to project into their 
lives the views of any one faith. The churches in Fredericksburg, 
representing most of the denominations, extend a cordial wel- 
come to the students, who are encouraged to associate themselves 
with some church. 

College YWCA. — The Young Women's Christian Association, 
standing as it does for the development of the body, mind, and 
spirit, seeks to meet a variety of student needs. Through various 
committees freshmen are aided in adjusting to a different envir- 
onment, in making new friends, and in participating in worth- 
while programs. The YWCA sponsors campus-wide religious con- 
cerns programs during which lectures, discussions, and personal 
conferences are held. It directs the annual World University 
Service (WUS) drive. 

Denominational Groups. — A number of the denominations 
have organizations on the campus. In cooperation with the local 
churches these groups promote the welfare of their members 
through frequent meetings for discussion, devotions, or social 
activity. 

The various religious organizations are: the Baptist Student 
Union, Canterbury, Student Religious Liberals (allied with the 
Unitarian Fellowship), the Lutheran Student Association, the 
Newman Movement, the Christian Science Organization, Hillel, 
the Wesley Foundation, and the Westminster Fellowship. 

There are three full-time church counsellors provided by their 
respective denominations (Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian) , 
who direct religious centers adjacent to the campus. Here stu- 
dents may find fellowship, guidance, and recreation. The College 
is not responsible for their programs but cooperates with the 
counsellors through the Office of the Dean of Students. 

Student Government Association 

The Student Government Association is composed of the 
entire student body. Its purpose is to promote personal respon- 
sibility, loyalty, and a high sense of honor in the individual 



Student Life, Organizations, and Activities 87 

student, and to represent and further the best interests of the 
student body and the College by inculcating the underlying 
principles of self-government and democracy. The Association 
has executive, legislative, and judicial branches on the overall 
campus level, and in the separate residence halls, each of which 
has a Hall President and representatives to each of the SGA 
Councils. The NSA coordinator (National Student Association) , 
the YWCA, the Inter-Club Association, the Recreation Associa- 
tion, and class presidents are members ex officiis of the overall 
executive branch, which is composed of the Hall Presidents and 
the Executive Officers of the SGA. 

Upperclass students are carefully selected and trained to serve 
for the academic year as advisers and mentors for the freshmen. 
They reside in the halls with the first-year students. 

Cases involving infractions of rules are referred to and acted 
upon by the Judicial Council, composed of two representatives 
from each of the four classes. Serious disciplinary cases, outside 
of the Honor Code, may be referred to the Joint Council. The 
Joint Council is composed of the five Student Government offi- 
cers and three members of the faculty appointed by the Chan- 
cellor. The Legislative Council is composed of one representa- 
tive from each of the four classes, the Day Students Representa- 
tive, and the residence hall legislative vice-presidents. 

A Handbook containing the Student Government and admin- 
istrative regulations is given to each student at the beginning 
of each college year. The new student is further acquainted with 
these rules and with the Honor System in orientation groups 
sponsored by the Student Government Association and the 
Honor Council in the first week of the session. 

The Student Government Association has several standing 
committees, with membership open to all students, enabling 
them to play an active role in academic, social, cultural and 
community affairs. 

The Honor System 

The Honor System is a moral code of personal integrity at 
Mary Washington College. It belongs to the students, who derive 
their authority and responsibility from the Board of Visitors of 



88 Mary Washington College 

the University of Virginia. Because students are responsible for 
deciding when a breach of honor has been committed, the 
enforcement of the Honor System is in their hands. 

Each student as a member of the student body at Mary 
Washington has the responsibility, not only for familiarizing 
herself with the provisions of the Honor Code upon which the 
student body has agreed, but also for developing within herself 
the highest and strongest personal honor code possible. Each 
student must realize that by accepting admission to Mary 
Washington, she has acknowledged her commitment to the pro- 
visions of the Honor Code. When she signs the Honor Pledge 
Card she is committing herself to support the Honor System 
unquestioningly. She is stating that she understands it, and 
realizes that a plea of ignorance is never acceptable. 

The Honor System provides that a student shall act honorably 
in all relationships of campus life. Lying, cheating, stealing, or 
breaking one's word of honor are considered infringements of 
the Honor System. Whenever a violation of the Honor System 
is proved, the result will always be immediate and permanent 
separation from the College. The pledge in classes on quizzes, 
examinations, written problems, and exercises means that the 
work which the student hands in to her professor is her own, 
which she herself has done in accordance with the requirements 
for the course as laid down by the professor. The pledge is as 
follows: "I hereby declare upon my word of honor that I have 
neither given nor received help on this work." The faculty coop- 
erates in establishing a clear understanding of these require- 
ments. In any case of doubt as to the nature or extent of a 
pledge, the student should immediately request that the profes- 
sor in charge make the requirement perfectly clear to the entire 
class. 

Every student entering the College for the first time is given 
a copy of the complete Code of the Honor System and she is 
expected to familiarize herself with its provisions. Orientation 
counsellors work to interpret the Honor System to every new 
student before she is asked to sign a pledge stating that she 
understands what is expected of her and that she realizes that a 
plea of ignorance will not be accepted by the Honor Council. 



Student Life, Organizations, and Activities 89 

Registration as a student in the College is not considered to 
have been completed until this card has been signed. No grades 
or credits will be released unless the signed Honor Pledge Card 
is on file. 

The Honor Council is composed of a president elected by the 
entire student body and one representative from each of the 
four classes. The president of the senior class serves until the 
freshman representative is elected. At a trial, the president chairs 
the Council, with either the president of the hall in which the 
accused resides, or in the case of a day student, the day student 
representative to the Student Government Association, constitut- 
ing the sixth member of the Council. The Honor Council takes 
neither character nor intention into consideration. 

The Honor Pledge Card that each student must sign to 
complete matriculation at the College reads as follows: 

"I, as a student and a citizen of Mary Washington College, do 
hereby resolve to uphold the honor of the College by refraining 
from giving or receiving academic material in a manner not 
authorized by the instructor; from the illegal appropriation of 
the property of others; and from the deliberate falsification of 
facts. I shall do all in my power at all times to create a spirit 
of honesty and honor for its own sake, both by upholding the 
Honor System myself and by helping others to do so." 

"I understand the Honor System and realize that a plea of 
ignorance will not be accepted by the Honor Council." 

Student Organizations and Clubs 

Mortar Board, the national honorary organization for senior 
women, taps outstanding juniors on the basis of leadership, 
scholarship, and service to the College. Members continue a 
variety of service projects. 

The Recreation Association, for all students, promotes whole- 
some activity and recreation. It cooperates with campus organiza- 
tions by emphasizing the values of participation in intramural 
and extramural sports. 

The Chorus and the Concert Band are under the direction of 
the Music Department. Membership, by audition, is open to all 
members of the student body. 



90 Mary Washington College 

Students who have had or are taking a course in Play Produc- 
tion or who have demonstrated their dramatic ability are eligible 
for membership in the Mary Washington Players. The club 
sponsors several major plays a year. Because of the proximity to 
Richmond and Washington, opportunity is afforded this group 
to witness some of the best professional theatrical productions. 

There are three student publications: The Bullet, the college 
newspaper published biweekly; The Epaulet, a literary magazine 
published quarterly; and The Battlefield, the college yearbook. 
The Student Handbook is issued by the Student Government 
Association in cooperation with the Office of the Dean of 
Students. 

On the campus there are a number of honorary fraternities, 
scholastic and professional societies, departmental clubs, and 
other student organizations. There are no social sororities. 

The national honorary fraternities include: Alpha Phi Sigma 
(scholastic), Alpha Psi Omega (dramatic), Chi Beta Psi (sci- 
ence) , Eta Sigma Phi (classics), Kappa Omicron Phi (home eco- 
nomics) , Mu Phi Epsilon (music) , Omicron Delta Epsilon (eco- 
nomics) , Phi Sigma Iota (Romance languages) , Pi Gamma Mu 
(social sciences) , Phi Chi (psychology), Zeta Phi Eta (profes- 
sional speech arts) . Sigma Omega Chi (sociology) and Sigma 
Tau Chi (economics) are local honorary organizations. There is 
an English Honorary Fraternity. 

Clubs and other organizations are Der Deutsche Verein, El 
Club Espanol, II Circolo Italiano, Le Cercle Frangais; Pi Nu Chi 
(nursing) and Mu Alpha Chi (medical technology and pre- 
medical) ; the Organ Guild and the Student Education Associa- 
tion; the Day Students', Home Economics, International Rela- 
tions, Mike, Oriental, Physical Therapy, Psychology, Sociology, 
and Science (Matthew Fontaine Maury) Clubs. 

The Hoof Prints, Fencing, Mary Washington Physical Educa- 
tion, Outing, and Terrapin Clubs are sponsored by the Recrea- 
tion Association. 

The Young Democrats and the Young Republicans were 
reactivated in the fall of 1964. 

All organizations are under the supervision of the student 
Inter-Club Council in cooperation with the Office of the Dean 
of Students and the Student Government Association. 



Student Life,, Organizations, and Activities 91 

Residential Life 

Residence Requirements 

Students are required to occupy residence hall rooms. Two 
exceptions are permitted: Effective September 14, 1968, students 
with senior status (90 or more hours of credit) , who are in good 
standing academically, financially, residentially, and socially and 
are not the recipients of financial assistance (excluding student 
aid and state teachers scholarships) may, with the written con- 
sent of their parents or guardians, reside off campus. All other 
students not residing in College residence halls must live in their 
own homes or with an immediate relative. Off-campus arrange- 
ments with immediate relatives must be approved by the Office 
of the Dean of Students. Students living off campus will be 
regarded officially as day students. 

Room Assignments 

Room assignments are made by mail from the Office of the 
Dean of Students. 

Opening and Closing Hours of Residence Halls 

At holidays, residence halls generally close at 6:00 p.m. on the 
day the holidays begin and reopen on the day preceding the 
beginning of classes. Accommodations are provided for those 
students who wish to remain on campus during Thanksgiving 
and Spring holidays. During the Christmas holidays no residence 
hall or dining room facilities are available. 

At Commencement, residence halls generally close at 6:00 p.m. 
the day of the graduating exercises. Students other than gradu- 
ating seniors are required to check out of their residence halls 
within twenty-four hours after their last examination, unless 
they have definitely assigned campus responsibilities. 

At the opening of the session in September, unless assigned 
campus duties are being fulfilled, returning students may not 
come to the campus until Tuesday after the Saturday on which 
new students arrive. 



92 Mary Washington College 

Residence Halls 

All residence halls provide comfortable housing, with ample 
ventilation and light. The newer halls are arranged in suites 
with connecting baths or in smaller living units. All major halls 
have reception rooms, recreation rooms, pressing rooms, washers 
and driers, kitchenettes, and storage facilities. 

Guests. — Students entertaining guests in the College dining 
hall are charged fifty cents for breakfast, seventy-five cents for 
lunch, and one dollar for dinner. Overnight guests are housed 
in the residence halls only at the invitation of individual residen- 
tial students. Such guests are to be registered in the residence 
hall office immediately on arrival. 

Room Furnishings. — The residence hall rooms are furnished 
with single beds including mattress and cover, pillows, dressers, 
study tables, chairs, and bookcases. 

The student must furnish sheets, pillow cases, towels, soap, 
and other articles desired such as lamps, rugs, etc. 

Kitchenettes and Pressing Rooms. — Each residence hall con- 
tains kitchenettes and pressing rooms. Cooking is permitted only 
in the kitchenettes. The College does not furnish irons for 
pressing. 

Baggage. — Trunks are not permitted in students' rooms or in 
corridors; storage facilities during the academic session are pro- 
vided by the College. 

Personal Property. — The College cannot assume liability for 
personal property damaged by fire, smoke, or water resulting 
from a fire in the residence halls. 

Personal property may be stored at the College during the 
summer only if it is in trunks, footlockers, or suitcases. The 
College assumes no liability for such storage. 

Seminars 

Several residence halls have organized special programs of 
reading and discussion within the hall. Although they receive 
no academic credit, all students in these groups have enjoyed 



Student Life,, Organizations, and Activities 93 

the stimulation arising from these projects; the programs have 
been initiated by students and carried on by student interest. 
Each is under the leadership or direction of a faculty member 
chosen by the group working informally with the Associate Dean 
of the College, and upon occasion several faculty members have 
visited the residence hall to conduct informal seminars. 

During Freshman Orientation, Faculty Fireside programs have 
proven beneficial in introducing the students to faculty members 
on an informal basis, as well as providing stimulating discussion. 

Language Houses and Laboratories 

Brent Hall and Marye Hall are language houses for students 
of French and Spanish respectively. One or more suites in appro- 
priate residence halls may be reserved for German majors. With 
the guidance of the Modern Foreign Languages Department 
staff, students engage in a systematic development of fluency 
in the oral use of the language. Seminar-type meetings, visiting 
speakers, and the social and cultural activities of the language 
clubs, which are centered in these houses, give additional oppor- 
tunities for acquiring facility in speaking. Major students must 
be given first consideration, but there is generally room for other 
students who have the necessary language proficiency, usually 
attained after completion of an intermediate course. 

The Department of Modern Foreign Languages operates two 
thirty-booth listen-record-listen laboratories, which are open for 
class sections under the regular instructor. Under the direction 
of a specially trained staff member, with student assistants, they 
are open several hours a day as a library facility for individual 
study. Members of beginning and intermediate classes are ex- 
pected to spend considerable time in the laboratory on their 
oral assignments, dictation exercises, and pronunciation. Students 
on more advanced levels may also use the laboratory. 



Health Program 

Mary Washington College is interested in the prevention of 
illness and the promotion of a high standard of health in its 
student body. 



94 Mary Washington College 

The College is concerned with conditions affecting student 
health in order that all cases of illness may be given proper care; 
that the incidence and spread of contagious diseases may be 
reduced to the lowest terms; and that the general working effi- 
ciency and living standards of the students may be maintained 
at a high level. 

Every student is required each year to present a certificate 
from her family physician indicating the results of a recent 
physical examination. This examination should he made not 
more than two months prior to the heginning of the session. 

Under no circumstances will a student be assigned to a room 
or allowed to register for classes until this completed medical 
form is on file. 

If this examination reveals information pertinent to the health 
and welfare of the student, such information should be included 
with the certificate. It is strongly recommended that all students 
receive the tetanus toxoid during the summer before entrance. 

The medical fee for students living in the residence halls covers 
the charges for services of the medical and nursing staff of the 
College and for time spent in the College Infirmary as a patient. 

Every student is required to participate in some form of physi- 
cal education which is in keeping with the condition and parti- 
cular physical needs of the individual. Special guidance is pro- 
vided for those with physical handicaps. No student is permitted 
to engage in any form of activity or exercise until it has been 
ascertained whether or not it is fitted to her physical condition. 

A complete program of intramural activities is provided, some 
of which are hockey, basketball, tennis, swimming, golf, lacrosse, 
bowling, fencing, dancing, archery, riding, and volleyball. 

Specialists, Private Nursing, Etc. 

The College does not assume responsibility for the cost of 
services of specialists or private nurses, or for special prescrip- 
tions, operations, or fees in the local hospital. 

A daily report is made by the Infirmary to the Dean of Stu- 
dents. In cases of severe illness or accident, the parents or guard- 
ians are informed promptly. 



Student Life, Organizations, and Activities 95 

Mary Washington Hospital in the City of Fredericksburg 
provides all modern facilities, including the services of specialists 
in all branches of medical science. A student is often referred 
to the hospital for diagnostic purposes and when the illness is 
too serious for her to remain in the College Infirmary. 

Health Regulations 

1. Students living in their own homes are not entitled to the 
services of the infirmary or College medical nursing staff. 

2. It is necessary to obtain an excuse through the College infir- 
mary for any absence from class on account of illness. 

3. The College calendar should be referred to in making out-of- 
town medical and dental appointments so that such engage- 
ments will not involve leaving early or entering late at holi- 
days. These appointments should not conflict with campus 
academic and extra-curricular obligations at any time. Ade- 
quate medical facilities are available in Fredericksburg when 
necessary. 

4. A student ill enough to be in bed should not remain in a 
residence hall, but should be in the infirmary where she can 
have proper care. No meals are served in the residence hall 
rooms. 

5. Students detained at home because of illness should notify 
the College infirmary immediately upon their return to the 
campus. 

6. Students who have been exposed to any infectious disease 
must report to the College Physician before attending classes 
or mingling with other students. 

7. A consulting physician may be called at the request of either 
the student or her parents or guardian; this is to be done 
through the College Physician or the Nurse.

Program of Studies 97 

Courses counted toward fulfilling any of the basic or area 
requirements for a degree cannot be counted also as part of the 
major subject requirements. A major program in English, for 
example, must include at least 24 semester hours in that subject, 
in addition to the 12 semester hours required of all students. Six 
of the 12 semester hours in related fields may, at the discretion 
of the departmental adviser, be included in the area require- 
ments. 

The requirement of six hours in Mathematics or Problems in 
Philosophy should be met during the first or second year. Enroll- 
ment in Problems in Philosophy is limited to freshmen and 
sophomores. 

The requirement of six hours in Fine Arts normally should 
be met by taking one of Art 111-112, Art History; Dramatic Arts 
211-212, World Drama; or Music 111-112, Survey of Music. 

Requirements for the Degree of Bachelor of Science. — The 

Bachelor of Science degree is available to students completing a 
major program in biology, chemistry, physics, psychology, or 
mathematics. Requirements are exactly the same as those for the 
Bachelor of Arts degree with two exceptions: 

(1) A modern foreign language (preferably German, French, 
or Russian) must be taken to satisfy the language requirement. 

(2) Instead of having a choice between mathematics and 
philosophy the student must complete six semester hours in 
mathematics. 

Requirements for the Degree of Bachelor of Science in 
Health, Physical Education, and Recreation. — The degree of 
Bachelor of Science in Health, Physical Education, and Recrea- 
tion is awarded to students completing a major in this field 
(see p. 145) . The basic and area requirements are the same as 
those for the Bachelor of Science degree. As of June, 1969, the 
conferring of this degree will be discontinued. 

Requirements for the Degree of Bachelor of Science in 
Medical Technology. — The requirements for this degree are 
also the same as those for the Bachelor of Science degree, the 
specialized courses outlined in the curriculum on pages 106 to 
108 constituting the major program. 



98 Mary Washington College 

Requirements for the Degree of Bachelor of Science in 
Physical Therapy. — The requirements for this degree are also 
the same as those for the Bachelor of Science degree, the coopera- 
tive program and suggested curriculum listed on pages 108 to 
110 constituting the major program. 

Major Program 

The major program usually includes 24 semester hours in the 
major subject and 12 semester hours in related subjects offered 
either in the major departments or in other departments. 

A major program leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree may 
be chosen from any one of the following fields: 



Art 


English 


Music 


Biology 


French 


Philosophy 


Chemistry 


Geography and 


Physics 


Dance 


Geology 


Political Economy 


Dramatic Arts and 


German 


Political Science 


Speech 


History 


Psychology 


Economics 


Latin 


Sociology 




Mathematics 


Spanish 



Detailed statements of the requirements for a major program 
in each of the above fields are given in the section of the cata- 
logue entitled "Course Offerings" (pp. 117 to 180). There are 
also certain interdepartmental major programs which draw their 
courses from closely related fields. For the specific schedules of 
subjects, see pages 101 to 105. 

Near the end of her sophomore year, each student should 
apply to the departmental chairman or the interdepartmental 
program adviser concerned for permission to undertake a major. 
In granting this permission, the department will inform the 
student of the name of her major adviser, who will help her to 
outline a program of studies for the junior and senior year and 
to meet department requirements. 

Elective Courses. — In addition to courses in the major fields 
listed above, the student may elect to take courses in astronomy, 



Program of Studies 99 

in education, in foreign languages other than those offering a 
major, and in religion. She may also apply for admission to the 
Liberal Arts Seminars. 

Twelve semester hours in vocational subjects, such as Home 
Economics and Education, is the maximum allowed for all 
students. 

Teaching. — Mary Washington does not confer professional 
degrees in Education. Students majoring in the various fields 
who wish to qualify for the Collegiate Professional Certificate 
may take the necessary courses as electives. (See pp. 138 to 140 
for sequence of courses leading to the Collegiate Professional 
Certificate.) 

Students who wish to qualify for teaching certificates should 
consult the requirements for certification in the state in which 
they expect to teach, in order that they may take the necessary 
courses. 

Preparation for Graduate Study. — A student contemplating 
graduate work should ascertain the requirements for advanced 
study in her field and should familiarize herself with the cata- 
logues of specific graduate schools. As early as possible she 
should discuss her plans with her adviser, so that she may be 
guided in her program of studies. 

The student should normally select French or German to meet 
the undergraduate language requirements, and study both lan- 
guages if she intends to pursue graduate work beyond the mas- 
ter's degree. In some fields Russian may prove valuable as a 
second language choice. 

The Honors Program of the College offers the student experi- 
ence in independent study and research that may help to qualify 
her for a graduate scholarship, fellowship, or assistantship. A 
collection of recent announcements of such awards is available. 

The student who applies for admission to the graduate school 
of a university may be required to take either the Graduate 
Record Examination or the Miller Analogy Test before her 
application is considered. Information concerning these exami- 
nations may be obtained from the Testing Center. 



100 Mary Washington College 

Foreign Languages. — Major programs are offered in French, 
German, Latin, and Spanish. Requirements for these major pro- 
grams are listed with the course offerings, but students should 
consult members of the department before choosing courses in 
related fields. 

Students who choose a major program in a foreign language 
are expected to participate actively in the work of the depart- 
mental club promoting the use of that language. 

In addition to the major programs in Latin, French, Spanish 
and German, sequences of elective courses in Greek, Italian, 
Portuguese, and Russian are also offered. Any of these languages, 
except Portuguese, may be selected in meeting the foreign lan- 
guage requirements for a degree. 

No credit is given for less than one full year of any foreign 
language. 

Credit for a single year in a foreign language will be allowed 
only if it is offered in addition to the degree requirement in 
foreign language or if it is a third-year course meeting the 
degree requirement. 

If credit for three years of foreign language is necessary to 
meet degree requirements, all three years must be taken in the 
same language. 

A student who has high school credit for two or three units 
in a foreign language will not receive college credit for a begin- 
ning course in that language. 

A student who has high school credit for four years in a foreign 
language will not receive college credit for an intermediate 
course in that language. 

Sequence of courses and prerequisite requirements must be 
strictly followed if credit is expected. 

Students who plan to continue the study of a language are 
urged to enroll in a course in that language in their first year 
at this college. Experience shows that interruption of continuous 
study may seriously affect progress in a language. 

Junior Year Abroad. — Mary Washington College participates 
in various junior year abroad programs. Students completing 
courses in programs approved by the Dean of the College and 
the chairman of the department of their major interest may 



Program of Studies 101 

receive appropriate credit toward a degree at Mary Washington. 
Further information may be obtained from the Dean of the Col- 
lege. 

Interdepartmental Majors 

Interdepartmental majors are offered in four fields: (1) the 
Pre-Medical Sciences; (2) American Studies; (3) Classical Civil- 
ization; and (4) Pre-Foreign Service. These comprehensive 
majors offer opportunity for a broader preparation in certain 
areas of study than that afforded by the existing departmental 
majors. 

Students who select an interdepartmental major are not re- 
quired to complete the customary departmental major, but they 
must fulfill all other requirements for a degree. (See pages 101 to 
105 for listing of required courses.) 

Since the curriculum for each interdepartmental major is 
organized in detail, students should plan their programs of 
study rather carefully in consultation with the adviser listed for 
the field. 

Pre-Medical Sciences 

Adviser: Mr. William A. Castle 

The interdepartmental major in the pre-medical sciences is 
designed as an undergraduate program for students planning to 
enter schools of medicine, dentistry, and medical technology. It 
provides a broader basis for further scientific study than the 
majors in biology or chemistry, but it does not replace majors in 
these fields. The general requirements are exactly the same as 
those for the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree with 
these exceptions: 

(1) French, German, or Russian must be taken to satisfy the 
language requirement. 

(2) Mathematics must be taken to satisfy the mathematics or 
philosophy requirement. 

(3) Psychology must be taken to satisfy the social science 
requirement. 



102 Mary Washington College 

A major program requires that a student earn thirty-six credits 

in pre-medical courses. Twenty-eight of the required credits 
must be: 

Chemistry 211-212, Organic Chemistry 8 credits 

Chemistry 251, 252, Analytical Chemistry 8 credits 

Physics 201-2, General Physics 8 credits 

Biology 221, Chordate Anatomy 4 credits 

Eight additional credits are to be taken in courses selected 
from the following: 

Biology 

Chemistry 

Psychology 

The above program meets the course requirements for admis- 
sion to practically all of the medical schools, including that of 
the University of Virginia. However, students are advised to 
consult the catalogue of the school which they wish to enter for 
detailed listings of requirements. With permission of the adviser 
the requirements listed above may be modified to meet the 
special requirements of particular schools. 

The program also meets the course requirements for entrance 
to approved schools for medical and clinical laboratory techni- 
cians. Recommended electives are bacteriology, embryology, 
parasitology, and other advanced courses in biology. Physical 
Chemistry is recommended by many medical schools. 

American Studies 

Advisers: Mr. Bernstein 
Mr. Thomas 

The interdepartmental major in American Studies emphasizes 
as a foundation a balanced program in the following: 

1. American History 

2. Literature and Philosophy 

3. Social Sciences 

4. Fine Arts 



Program of Studies 103 

5. A knowledge of at least one non-American civilization 

In addition to the four American Studies seminars, a minimum 
of twenty-four hours in 300-400 level courses must be taken in a 
combination of these five areas. Beyond these basic requirements 
the program stresses flexibility in meeting the interests of the 
individual majors. A student may, according to her interests, 
concentrate in one of the above areas. 

The general requirements are exactly the same as those for 
the Bachelor of Arts degree. It is recommended, however, that 
prospective majors take Political Science 201-202 to satisfy the 
requirement in social science. 

A major program requires that each student complete the 
four American Studies seminars in her junior and senior years. 
No two seminars may be taken concurrently. The remainder of 
the major program will be planned around the five areas that 
form the core of the major in close consultation with the pro- 
gram directors. 

Classical Civilization 

Adviser: Mrs. Laura Sumner 

This interdepartmental major is centered in classical civiliza- 
tion and culture. Courses in the art, philosophy, history, and 
literature of ancient Greece and Rome constitute the basic 
requirements. Either Latin or Greek must be taken in addition 
to a modern language, and both are recommended. 

The general requirements are exactly the same as those for 
the Bachelor of Arts degree, with these exceptions: 

(1) French, German, Latin, or Greek must be taken to satisfy 

the language requirement. 

(2) Philosophy 101-2 must be taken to satisfy the mathemat- 
ics or philosophy requirement. 

(3) Art 111-112 must be taken to satisfy the fine arts require- 
ment. 

A major program requires that a student earn forty-four credits 



104 Mary Washington College 

in courses in classical civilization. Thirty of the required credits 

must be: 

Latin or Greek 12 credits* 

History 331-2, History of Ancient Greece and Rome 6 credits 

Philosophy 321, Greek Philosophy 3 credits 

Philosophy 322, Medieval Philosophy 3 credits 

Art 385-6, Greek and Roman Art and Archaeology 6 credits 

Twelve additional credits are to be taken in courses selected 
from the following: 

Latin or Greek 12 credits 

Classics 201, Greek Literature in Translation 3 credits 

Classics 202, Latin Literature in Translation 3 credits 

Music 305-6, History of Music 4 credits 

Philosophy 212, Aesthetics 3 credits 

Any advanced course in the History of Art 3 or 6 credits 

Any advanced course in the Department 

of Classics 3 or more credits 

*If a classical language is used to fulfill the language require- 
ment for the degree, the other classical language must be offered 
for the major. 

Pre-Foreign Service 

Adviser: Mr. Kurt F. Leidecker 

The interdepartmental major in Pre-Foreign Service is a lib- 
eral arts course in which the offerings of certain departments 
are regrouped in such a way that they will prepare a student 
wishing to work in one of the many agencies of the United 
States either directly or after supplementary training, to enter 
a business firm overseas, to teach in a foreign country, to join 
the Peace Corps, to work for a domestic organization, institution 
or foundation having a foreign department, or to continue her 
language, area, or foreign relations studies at a graduate school. 

A student choosing this major should indicate her interest at 
the latest during the second semester of her freshman year. 
Great stress is laid on American backgrounds, international area 
studies, and particularly foreign languages. 



Program of Studies 105 

The general degree requirements are the same as for the 
Bachelor of Arts degree, with these qualifications: 

1. Philosophy 101-102 must be taken to satisfy the mathemat- 
ics or philosophy requirement. 

2. The modern foreign language to be taken should be the 
one in which the student comes to Mary Washington Col- 
lege with some proficiency, as determined by the Depart- 
ment of Modern Foreign Languages. This does not pre- 
clude the possibility of taking up a second foreign lan- 
guage, preferably in the sophomore year. 

3. Economics 201-202 or Political Science 201 and 202 must 
be taken to satisfy the social science requirement. 

The major program requires that a student earn 54 credits in 
recommended courses in the following departments: 

Modern Languages 12 credits 

Geography 9 credits 

Political Science 6 or 9 credits 

Economics 9 or 6 credits 

History 6 credits 

Philosophy 6 credits 

English or Psychology or Sociology 6 credits 

Ten additional credits are to be selected from cognate courses 
in various departments, including those mentioned under the 
major program, in order to attain greater proficiency in certain 
fields. In the event that relevant special courses are announced, 
the candidate for a degree is expected to take them under this 
category. 

Special groupings of courses, depending on the type of foreign 
service the student wishes to enter, will be made upon consulta- 
tion with the adviser and the department involved. 

At least one-third of all courses taken must be on the junior 
and senior levels. Engaging in independent study and participa- 
tion in honors work, the Liberal Arts Seminars, and the Junior 
Year Abroad are encouraged so as to intensify certain area 
studies. 



106 Mary Washington College 

Cooperative Programs 

Cooperative Program in Medical Technology 

Adviser: Mr. William A. Castle 

The College offers a degree program in Medical Technology 
in cooperation with the University of Virginia School of Medi- 
cine and also the Medical College of Virginia. The curriculum 
covers three sessions of academic work at Mary Washington 
College, followed by a twelve-month period of specialized train- 
ing in medical technology. 

On successful completion of the fourth academic year the 
degree of Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology will be 
awarded by Mary Washington College or by the Medical College 
of Virginia in conjunction with Mary Washington College. After 
satisfactory completion of the twelve-month period at Charlottes- 
ville or Richmond, the student will be eligible to take the 
examinations for registration and certification by the Board of 
Registry of Medical Technologists of the American Society of 
Clinical Pathologists. 

The number of students who can be admitted to the final 
twelve-month training period is limited by the facilities avail- 
able. Admission to the last two years of the program will be 
based upon scholastic record, demonstrated aptitude, and a 
personal interview by Medical School representatives. Applica- 
tion for the fourth year should be made about one year prior 
to entrance. After registration for the second semester of the 
junior year a transcript must be sent to the Registrar, Registry 
of Medical Technology, Muncie, Indiana, with $1.00 evaluation 
fee, for approval. The interview with Medical School represen- 
tatives will follow. 

In the event that a student enrolled in this program should 
change her interest or not qualify for admission to the clinical 
laboratories, she may continue with the regular degree program 
at Mary Washington College and the courses she has taken may 
be applied to a major in biology or chemistry.

The clinical laboratories of the University of Virginia School 
of Medicine and of the Medical College of Virginia are approved 
by the Board of Registry of the American Society of Clinical 
Pathologists and by the Council on Medical Education and 
Hospitals of the American Medical Association. Students com- 
pleting the program as outlined meet the requirements of the

Cooperative Programs in Physical Therapy 

There is a need for physical therapists (1) in the field of 
general medicine, neurology, orthopedics, and surgery; (2) for 
work with crippled children; and (3) for specialized services 
in the hospitals of the Army, Navy, and the Veterans Administra- 
tion. 

Mary Washington College offers three courses of study for 
preparation of students in physical therapy. One provides two 
years of liberal arts work meeting the prerequisites of a third 
and fourth year of specialized training at any approved school of 
physical therapy which offers a two-year program. Upon satis- 
factory completion of the required work, the degree of Bachelor 
of Science in Physical Therapy will be awarded by the particular 
medical school attended. 

The second program provides for three years of liberal arts 
work at Mary Washington College and a fourth or fifth year of 
specialized training at any approved school of physical therapy 
which offers a one-year course. Upon satisfactory completion of 
the required program of study the degree of Bachelor of Science 
in Physical Therapy will be awarded by Mary Washington 
College or by the particular medical school attended. 



Program of Studies 109 

The third program is one in which a student graduates from 
Mary Washington College with a major in some appropriate 
field. Post-baccalaureate work may then be taken at an approved 
school of physical therapy with the possibility of earning grad- 
uate credit to be applied toward a master's degree. All courses 
of study should be worked out in detail with the help of the 
curriculum adviser. 

A suggested outline for the first two years of study follows. 
Substitution may be made with approval of the curriculum 
adviser. It is recommended that as soon as possible, certainly 
before the end of the freshman year, the student should make 
known to the adviser which program she intends to follow and 
to which school she wishes to make application for professional 
training, in order that specific prerequisites may be met. 

A list of physical therapy schools approved by the Council on 
Medical Education and Hospitals of the American Medical 
Association, together with their particular prerequisites for 
entrance, is made available to each student in the adviser's office.

Cooperative Program in Elementary Education 

Adviser: Mrs. Catherine Hook 

Students who wish a more specialized preparation for teaching 
in the elementary grades than that offered at Mary Washington 
may enroll in a cooperative program for the preparation of 
elementary teachers leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science 
in Education at the University of Virginia. 

This program provides that the first two years of general aca- 
demic work be taken at Mary Washington College and the third 
and fourth years, including both academic and professional 
work, be taken in the School of Education at the University of 
Virginia, in Charlottesville. 

Students interested in the cooperative program sponsored by 
the University of Virginia and Mary Washington College should 
apply for admission to Mary Washington College stating their 
desire to take elementary education. Upon their enrollment, the 
School of Education at the University will be notified of the 
student's choice and the student's adviser at Mary Washington 
College, in cooperation with the Dean of that College and the 
Dean of the School of Education, will institute a program to 
help the student carry out the work successfully. 

Cooperative Program in Speech Pathology and Audiology 

Adviser: Mr. Albert G. Duke 

There is an increasing demand for teachers and clinical work- 
ers with special training in speech, including speech pathology 
and audiology. To supplement the major program in Dramatic 
Arts and Speech at Mary Washington College, a cooperative 
program has been established with the University of Virginia 
to provide a major program in speech pathology and audiology. 

This program provides that the first three years of work be 
taken at Mary Washington College and that the fourth year be 
spent in residence at the University of Virginia in Charlottes- 
ville. Students who transfer to Mary Washington College are 
required to spend two years in residence prior to their senior year 
at the University. Upon completion of the program at the Uni- 



114 Mary Washington College 

versity of Virginia the student receives a Bachelor of Arts degree 
from Mary Washington College, with a major in speech pathol- 
ogy and audiology. 

Students interested in the program should apply to the Direc- 
tor of Admissions, Mary Washington College. Requests for 
further information about the program should be addressed to 
the Director of the Speech and Hearing Center, University of

116 Mary Washington College 

At Mary Washington the student takes work to fulfill her 
major program and degree requirements. She completes all work 
in general and professional education that is required for 
Virginia certification except Supervised Teaching. Immediately 
after graduation from Mary Washington the student enters the 
Summer Session of the School of Education at the University. 
She will take course work as further preparation for teaching 
her subject or grade level. In the fall she will be assigned to a 
cooperating school where she will have half of a teaching load, 
for which she will receive half salary. A cooperating teacher will 
be assigned by the school division to work with and help her. 
College supervisors will be in close communication with intern 
teachers, and seminars will be conducted periodically. During 
the intern year the student will be permitted to earn three 
graduate credits a semester, in addition to the six credits for 
the year she will earn for the intern teaching. After the year 
of intern teaching, the student may return to the University 
to complete the remaining work which leads to the award of a 
masters degree. 

Inquiries about the program should be directed to the Depart- 
ment of Education at Mary Washington College. Applications 
must be submitted to the Department of Education by May 15 
of the student's junior year. Notification of acceptance will be 
made during the summer between the student's junior and 
senior year.

AMERICAN STUDIES 

Assistant Professors Bernstein, Thomas 

The following four seminars are designed specifically for 
American Studies majors, and must be taken in their junior 
and senior years. These seminars will be open to students by 
permission of the instructor. 

American Studies Seminar I — Regionalism. An inquiry into the cultural

ethnic and racial elements of the population, environmentalism, the growth 
of social institutions, the individual art forms, and the philosophy of re- 
gionalism. Three credits. Mr. Bernstein. 

American Studies Seminar II — Darwin and Freud. A study of the impact 
of evolution and psychoanalytic theory upon American thought, with special 
attention to literature, religion, sociology, and psychology. To be taken in 
the junior year. Three credits. Mr. Thomas. 

American Studies Seminar III — The Impact of the Fine Arts on Ameri- 
can Civilization. A study of selected individuals in the creative arts in the 
United States. This seminar is designed to investigate whether or not there is 
a distinctive "American Art." Painting, architecture, music, literature and 
theatre will be among those areas explored. Three credits. Mr. Bernstein. 

American Studies Seminar IV — Mass Media and American Culture. A 

study of contemporary American culture through an analysis of mass media: 
television, popular music, popular theatre, best-sellers, movies, newspapers, 
advertising and sports. These popular expressions are to be examined as a 
means of illuminating American character, values, ideals and aspirations. 
Three credits. Mr. Thomas.

ART 

Professor Pauline G. King, Chairman 

Professors Binford, Laura Sumner, Van Winckel 

Assistant Professors Bernstein, Fischer, Herban*, Kinsman,

Instructors Halem, Lang 

Visiting Lecturer Ansari 

Two major programs are offered: Studio Art (Practice of Art) 
and History of Art. Students majoring in either program must 
arrange their four-year schedules in consultation with an adviser, 
in order to assure a coordinated program. 

A. Studio Art Major: 

In addition to the general college admission requirements, 
each student applying for a major in studio art must submit a 
portfolio of work done previously, either in classes or on her 
own. Photographs or slides of pottery or sculpture will be ac- 
ceptable, if the student wishes to include work in these fields 
for consideration. If it is impossible to bring examples of work, 
a test will be given the student by the studio art staff. Advanced 
standing may be requested by entering majors or by non-major 
students who wish to elect studio classes; decision will be made 
on the basis of previous courses taken, work submitted, and con- 
ferences with the studio art staff. 

Requirements for the major: 24 credits in studio art more ad- 
vanced than Art 101-102, and 12 credits in Art History. Art 101- 
102 and Art History 111-12, or their equivalents, are required. 
The latter may be taken as part of the 12 credits of art history 
in the major; if so, the college degree requirement for six credits 
in Fine Arts may be satisfied by taking Music 111, 112 or Dra- 
matic Arts 211-212. 

The two semesters of the basic course, Art 101, Drawing and 
Design, and Art 102, Three-dimensional Design, are intended 
to give the entering student some planned experiences in vari- 
ous mediums and forms of art expression, and to introduce her 

* On leave of absence, session of 1967-1968. 



120 Mary Washington College 

to techniques, methods of work, and attitudes, which will tend 
to lead her to more confident and independent work in her more 
advanced classes. Both sections of the course are given each se- 
mester, so that the student may complete the entire course in a 
single year, regardless of which section is taken first. 

In planning their program, all majors must arrange to take 
at least 4 credits in figure drawing, Art 211-212 or Art 241-242. 

Sequence of courses in studio art: 8-12 credits are to be selec- 
ted from courses numbered on the 200 level; at least 12 credits 
are to be selected from courses numbered on the 300-400 levels. 
All classes beyond the introduction to Art 101-102, may be taken 
by semesters, but a year's work is recommended. If a student has 
completed the college requirements for graduation and fulfilled 
the departmental requirements for the major, she may elect ad- 
ditional studio art courses. 

Students expecting to teach art should see the departmental ad- 
viser at the end of the Sophomore year, to be sure that state 
certification requirements may be met by scheduling the neces- 
sary departmental courses. In addition, Art Ed. 342 (listed under 
the Education Department) , Seminar in Art Education, is re- 
quired in the Junior or Senior year for the prospective art teach- 
er; it may be elected in place of Ed. 322, of the regular profes- 
sional sequence, Ed. 321-322, regularly required for certification 
to teach art in the public schools of Virginia. 

French, German, and Italian are the languages most useful 
for the art student, insofar as European travel or the historical 
literature of the field are concerned. 

Courses in studio art may be elected by non-majors when they 
have completed the necessary requirements. Art 101-102, or its 
equivalent, is a prerequisite for any 200 level course in studio 
art. Specific departmental prerequisites for each course must be 
adhered to. In accordance with paragraph one above, work may 
be submitted in substantiation of a request for advanced place- 
ment. 

B. History of Art Major: 

The major consists of 30 credit hours. In addition to Art 485 
(3 credits) , Research in the History of Art, the student should 



Course Offerings 121 

take 27 hours of art history more advanced than the introductory 
college course, Art 111-112. However, this course is required of 
all majors as a prerequisite for advanced art history courses, un- 
less the equivalent has been taken. 

A student planning to do graduate work in art history is ad- 
vised to take a second foreign language among her electives. A 
reading knowledge of both French and German is required for 
most graduate work in art history. 

In order to assure a well-rounded, liberal arts program, it is 
recommended that while the student is reviewing courses to ful- 
fill the degree requirements for the remaining 34 hours of credit, 
in consultation with her adviser, she consider the following 
groups of suggestions: 

Foreign Language (French or German) 

History courses (including History 111-112, if not already 
taken) 

Studio Art Courses 

Selections from the following, listed alphabetically: Introduc- 
tion to Anthropology, Dramatic Arts (211-212; 361-362) , Liberal 
Arts Seminar, Advanced Literature courses, Music (History and 
Literature) , Mythology, Philosophy, and Religion.

experienced teachers. Supervised teaching is available in the high 
school academic subjects and in the elementary grades, as well as 
in art, music, and physical education. 

For assignment to supervised teaching, students must meet 
the eligibility requirements, which include (a) senior status;

Students choosing to major in English must take at least 
twenty-four credits in English courses numbered 300 or higher 
and twelve credits in related fields, in addition to the twelve

hours of English listed in the degree requirements. The twenty- 
four hours in advanced English courses must include six hours 
in courses numbered 300 to 326; six hours in courses numbered 
335 to 366; six hours in 400 courses. 

Because the method of instruction in the 400 courses will 
assume knowledge of relevant background material, a student 
should prepare for any of these courses by doing the prerequisite 
reading listed on a bibliography distributed by the department. 
This bibliography is sent to all students who express an inten- 
tion to take a 400 course. It is equally valuable for appropriate 
300 courses. 

In the spring of their senior year majors are required to pass 
a written examination in English and American literature in 
order to complete their major program. This comprehensive 
examination is designed to encourage majors to assimilate ma- 
terial from classes, independent study, and personal reading and 
to offer them an opportunity to display a comprehensive knowl- 
edge of literary trends and theories. A copy of sample questions 
is in the Reserve Room in the Library, and departmental ad- 
visers can provide additional information on request. 

A distinguished performance on the comprehensive, in addi- 
tion to a high grade average in English course work, will entitle 
majors to the recognition of their achievement by graduating 
with "Honors in English." 

It is recommended that English majors who plan to do grad- 
uate work take two foreign languages, preferably French and 
German. 

The twelve credits of related study are to be selected, with 
the approval of the student's adviser, from among the courses 
numbered 200 or higher in the following departments; six credits

Students applying for admission to the College must take a 
College Board Achievement Test in a foreign language. If this 
test is taken in a modern foreign language, students planning to 
continue in that language will be advised of the level of the 
course in which they should enroll. 

A student who has high school credit for two or three units 
in a foreign language will not receive credit for a beginning 
course in that language. 

A student who has high school credit for four years in a for- 
eign language will not receive credit for an intermediate course 
in that language. 

Students who read, write, and speak a language other than 
English may receive credit only for advanced courses in that 
language. 

The foreign language is the language of the classroom for all 
courses numbered 200 and above. Lower levels will use the 
foreign language as much as student preparation and progress 
allow. 

To insure majors an acquaintance with all acknowledged mas- 
terpieces of a literature, the department offers a guided reading 
program. Majors in the junior and senior year are required to 
read and to report in the language of their major on ten books 
each year. Some of these studies may be incorporated in the 
work of the senior reading course.
